---and in every home there is

Think back for a moment 
about WATER I The most prim- 
itive and uncivilized of men 
would never have thought of 
building the rudest of homes 
except close to an abundant 
supply of water. An instinct 
before science said that water 
must be pure. Then, consider 
WATER as mankind learned 
to live better — as a due regard 
for cleanliness and sanitation 
and the husbandry of animals 
made water an ever-increasing 
need of living. No longer would 
a nearby stream or the occa- 
sional water-hole suffice ! Man's 
needs for water have grown so 
large that he must find means 




to bring it to him. And from 
this need came the crude water 
supply systems of the ancients. 

NOW ! — look around the com- 
munity in which you live. In 
each home — in each place of 
business — on each farm there 
exist many and varying needs 
for RUNNING WATER UN- 
DER PRESURE! And in each 
of these places where a means 
for supplying running water is 
lacking or is inadequate, the 
Fairbanks-Morse Dealer has a 
prospect of a sale. And within 
each of these places he is sure 
of someone who will gladly aid 
in making that sale, because in 
all such places there is at least 
one person — very likely more 
than one — carrying a laborious 
burden due to the lack of mod- 
ern running water facilities.

Ask her on a freezing winter 
morning as she thaws a frozen

water at the turn of her hand 
within the warmth of her 
kitchen. Would she help you 
sell a Fairbanks - Morse Home 
Water System? Then talk to 
her husband as at the end of a 
hard day in the fields he is 
pumping water for horses and 
cattle. Is it a welcome chore to 
him? Does he look forward to 
doing it every day of his life 
to come? Or would he prefer

he enters his home for the eve- 
ning meal and rest? 



A farm home burns 
every fifteen min- 
utes somewhere in 
the United States. 
Your prospect's 
home may be next. 




Then consider the matter of 
fire hazard. The value of the 
home and other buildings that 
comprise the average suburban 
or farm home, runs into thou- 
sands of dollars. Such an in- 
vestment is worthy of the best 
protection that can be secured. 
A comparison of the losses in 
property with and without city 
service proves homes with wa- 
ter pressure protection are 
many times safer from fire. 

Early, effective action is the 
secret of preventing loss after 
a fire has started. This is the 
reason that F-M Home Water 
Systems are so valuable in re- 



ducing fire risk. With running 
water under pressure, the per- 
son discovering the fire can at 
once direct a steady stream of 
water at the base of the blaze. 




They need not lose valuable 
time frantically calling for 
help. There is no delay going 
to and from the pump. A turn 
of a faucet gives them water 



under pressure instantly. 

A farm building burns every 
fifteen minutes somewhere in 
the United States. Your pros- 
pect's home may be next. Tell 
him that fire prevention is far 
better than fire insurance. It is 
impossible to insure legally 
property for its complete re- 
placement cost. Considering 
the material value alone, fire is 
always costly. But fire cost in 
the home cannot be reckoned in 
dollars and cents. Insurance 
cannot restore irreplaceable 
treasuries ; it cannot protect 
against the suffering of loved 
ones. 

Go into any home which does 
not have running water, ask 
those whose joy in living is les- 
sened by the lack of a Home 
Water System. Show them how 
little their sacrifices are ac- 
tually saving. Tell them how 
easy and how little it costs for 
a Fairbanks-Morse Home Wa- 
ter System. They will aid you 
in loosening the purse strings, 
if aid is needed. They will be- 
come your powerful allies on 
the job every hour in that home 
to make a sale for you. Enlist 
their aid to your profit.

'WHEREVER THERE IS LIFE, THERE IS NEED 
FOR RUNNING WATER." 

Wherever human beings stay or go, there is a mar-

F -M Water Systems are made in a variety of sizes 
for every requirement — domestic, agricultural and 
industrial.

It may be a gigantic city 
pumping station furnishing 
many millions of gallons of wa-

of people — or it may be a sub- 
urban or farm home where a 
family's water needs are small 
by comparison. But Fairbanks- 
Morse serve both and regard 
them as equally important. 

Whether the demand is for 
millions of gallons to serve the 
municipality or for merely suf- 
ficient water to meet the needs 
of a farm or suburban home, 
F-M pumping equipment is 
chosen with the same assurance 
of lasting dependability. On 
sheer merit F-M pumps, motors 
and engines have built a repu- 
tation that serves as a reliable 
guide to equipment buyers in 
every field.

These six huge F-M Centrifugal Pumps installed in the Torresdale Pumping Station at 
Philadelphia have a capacity of 336 million gallons per day. They are driven by F-M 

Ball Bearing Motors. 



Fairbanks-Morse Home Wa- 
ter Systems are built to the 
same rigid standards of quality, 
workmanship and advanced de- 
sign as are the mammoth F-M 
units used in municipal and in- 
dustrial installations. The same 




F-M guaranty assures satisfac- 
tory, year-in and year-out per- 
formance whether the unit is 
used in a farmhouse or installed 
in a municipal structure cover- 
ing a city block. 

Consider these facts from the 
standpoint of your own profits 
as a dealer. Think of the added 
value of the Fairbanks-Morse 
franchise — the selling advan-

water systems built by an or- 
ganization whose reputation is

every prospective buyer. In- 
evitably, Fairbanks-Morse lead- 
ership is reflected in increased 
sales for dealers. 
Here is another important ad- 
vantage that leads to wider 
sales and greater profits for 
Fairbanks-Morse dealers. F-M 
Water Systems are built in 
sizes and combinations to meet 
every water pumping require- 
ment. No sales are lost because 
of inability to supply the exact 
type of equipment demanded. 
From 200 gallons an hour and 
up, F-M Water Systems are 
available — both in motor and 
engine driven models — for shal- 
low well, deep well, lake or cis- 
tern installations. 




The low price of this 200 gallon per hour 
F-M Water System puts running water 
within the reach of the most modest home. 



Fairbanks-Morse Home Wa- 
ter Systems are offered at fav- 
orable prices, made possible 




only by F-M volume produc- 
tion. Every unit is covered by 
a single dependable guaranty 
because Fairbanks-Morse build 
both pumps and power. A com- 
plete supply of parts is main- 
tained at all Fairbanks-Morse 
branches. 

Dealers who handle the F-M 
line of water systems have at 
their command all the elements 
necessary for profitable busi- 
ness in volume. 

The new models of F-M 
Home Water Systems shown in 
this catalog and the attractive 
prices at which they are sold 
offer F-M Dealers the greatest 
opportunity ever — for increased 
sales and profits.

When to use a 
Shallow Well Pump 



The Information on these few pages and 
those in the back part of this book will be 
found to be of great assistance in deter- 
mining the kind and size of Fairbanks- 
Morse Water Systems best suited for any 
requirement. 



There are two general classes 
of pumps — the shallow well 
type and the deep well type. In 
order that you may know what 
type of pump to recommend, 
the first thing to do on any 
pumping job is to ascertain the 
maximum distance from the in- 
let opening of the pump to the 
lowest level the water will drop 
in the cistern, well or other 
source of supply while the 
pump is being operated at the 
delivery rate required. The low- 
est level must be considered, 
because it is possible in many 
cases to strike water at a depth 
of say 20 feet, but once the 
pump gets into operation the 
water level falls very rapidly 
with the result it is soon out of 
reach of the pump, and all the 
pump can do is to pump air un- 
til the well again fills up. 

If this maximum distance is 
found to be 22 feet or less, a

ciple. The maximum dis-

level to pump is 22 feet 
or less. 




pump that operates on the "suc- 
tion" principle may be used. 
These are called either "suc- 
tion" pumps or "shallow well" 
pumps. 

In the action of the shallow 
well pump we have an interest- 
ing application of the pressure 
of the atmosphere. At sea level 
the pressure of the atmosphere 
is 14.7 pounds per square inch, 
or roughly speaking 15 pounds.

BZ FT. LIFT 



This means that at sea level 
there is approximately 15 
pounds per square inch pres- 
sure against every object on the 
earth — it is pressing against the 
sides of buildings — the roofs of 
buildings — and the only reason 
the buildings do not collapse or 
the roofs cave in is that an iden- 
tical pressure is being exerted 
from the inside. As the eleva- 
tion increases the pressure of 
the atmosphere decreases (see 
Figure 2). 

The illustration on the next 
page shows a simple, valve-in- 
plunger type force pump which 
illustrates a good many of the 
principles employed in shallow 
well pumping. On the upstroke 
of the plunger a partial vacuum 
is created in the cylinder. The 
atmospheric pressure (14.7 
pounds per square inch) then 
forces the water through the 
suction pipe into the cylinder. 
On the downstroke, the valve at

the suction pipe closes but the 
valves in the plunger open, let- 
ting the water go through to 
the top part of the cylinder. On 
the next upstroke the plunger 
valves close forcing the water 
through the discharge pipe to 
the pressure tank or wherever 
it is to go. The stuffing box 
"a" is to prevent leakage at the 
piston rod. The air chamber is 
to provide an elastic cushion of 
air to eliminate the water ham- 
mer or knock that would other- 
wise occur due to the fact that 
water itself is incompressible 
and therefore offers stubborn 
resistance to any outside force 
expended upon it. Air with its 
elastic characteristics, there- 
fore, is essential in the success- 
ful operation of any pressure 
system. 

Double Acting Pump 

In the double acting pump 
illustrated on this page we have 
two suction valves (S-l and 
S-2) and two discharge valves 
(D-l and D-2) so that water is 
admitted at one end of the cyl- 
inder at the same time that it 
is being discharged from the 
other end. 

This diagram drawing gives 
a good idea of the operation of 
the Fairbanks-Morse Water 
Systems for shallow wells. In 
actual installation the entire 
box is filled with water even 
when the pump is standing still. 
In other words, all four valves 
would be covered with water so 
that when the piston is put into 
motion the pump will start im- 
mediately to deliver its full dis- 
charge. A pump with valves 
thus submerged with water is

pump show ng direclicn of water flow. 



said to be "primed." 

In the illustration of the cross 
section of the double acting 
pump shown on this page, as 
the plunger moves to the right 
the suction created opens the 
suction valve S-l and allows the 
cylinder to fill with water. At 
the same time the water to the 
right of the cylinder is forced 
under pressure through the dis- 
charge valve D-2 into the dis- 
charge line. On the return mo- 
tion, suction valve S-2 opens 
and the water is forced out 
through discharge valve D-l, 
this cycle repeating itself as 
long as the pump is in opera- 
tion. 

Maximum Lift Of Shallow 
Well Pumps 

This depends entirely on the 
pressure of the atmosphere. 
One pound of pressure per 
square inch will force water 
2.31 feet. Atmospheric pres- 
sure is considered to be 14.7 
pounds per square inch at sea 
level. Theoretically, therefore, 
a suction pump should lift wa- 
ter 14.7x2.31 or approximately 
34 feet. In practice it is not 



possible to get a perfect vacuum 
in the pump cylinder so that the 
effective atmospheric pressure 
is in reality less than 14.7 
pounds per square inch. It is 
customary to consider 22 feet a 
safe maximum lift to use for the 
suction pump. At levels higher 
than sea level this lift will be 
reduced as illustrated in Fig- 
ure 2. 

Long Suction Pipes Further 

Reduce Lifting Power Of 

Pumps 

A long suction pipe (which, 
by the way, should always slope 
up toward the pump throughout 
its entire run — never down- 
ward) will decrease the lifting 
power of the pump according 
to the table on page 13. The 
determining factors are the 
length of suction pipe, its di- 
ameter and the size of the pump 
being used (namely the amount 
of water flowing through the 
pipe).

Forcing Power Of Pressure 

It is obvious from the table 
shown here that if there is a 
very long distance from the 
source of supply to the pump it 
would be advisable to place the 
pump closer to the source of 
supply and rely upon the dis- 
charge pressure to force the 
water wherever it is needed. 
Figure 9 is typical of such an 
installation. 

One pound (per square inch) 
of pressure will force water 2.3 
feet. In order to be safe 2 feet 
is the figure that is generally 
used. Therefore, if you have a 
40 pound pump you can force 
the water about 80 feet but if 
the elevation ("V" in the figure, 
plus pipe friction) were actu- 
ally 80 feet a 40 pound pump 
would not enable you to build 
up any pressure in the storage 
tank at the tank level. A 65 
pound pump on the other hand,

indicated. This table is 
on the basis of straight; 
new, smooth pipe, with- 
out elbows. If several 
elbows were used it 
would further decrease 
the lifting power of the 
pump.

would enable you to build a 
pressure of about 25 pounds 
maximum in the storage tank. 
A 100 pound pump would en- 
able you to build a pressure of 
100 minus 40 or 60 pounds maxi- 
mum in the storage tank, etc.

A Genuine Fairbanks-Morse 

Automatic Water System 

at ONLY $59.50 



Now every home equipped 
with electricity — no matter how 
modest — can enjoy the conven- 
ience, pleasures and advantages 
of having running water under 
pressure just like city water 
service — and at a fraction of 
city water cost. 

This is made possible by an- 
other great F-M triumph in 
home comfort equipment — a big 
capacity water system that 
gives faucet service instantly, 
when and where wanted — an 
automatic unit that can be in- 
stalled in a minimum of space 
and then practically forgotten 
— priced to give the greatest 
value ever offered in home wa- 
ter system history! 

This Fairbanks-Morse Home 
Water System is for small 
homes, summer cottages, etc., 
and will meet the ordinary wa- 
ter requirements of the average 
home of 5 persons. 

The pump is of the recipro- 
cating, double acting type; 
practically noiseless in opera- 
tion. Extremely compact — only 
19 inches in diameter and 22 



inches high — so compact in fact 
that it may be placed under a 
kitchen sink if desired. 

Automatic/ Self Oiling 

This system is completely 
automatic in operation — start- 
ing automatically when the 
pressure in the five gallon gal- 
vanized tank drops to 20 
pounds ; stopping automatically 
when the tank pressure is built 
up to 40 pounds. 

The pump has but one place 
to oil. The crankcase serves as 
the oil reservoir and the oil 
needs to be changed only about 
once a year. 

Air Valve 

An air valve conveniently lo- 
cated in the bonnet, makes it 
easy to admit air into the sys- 
tem in case of water logging. 

Pump Details 

The pump has a two bearing, 
drop forged steel crankshaft, 
bronze connecting rod and con- 
necting rod bearings, and a 
tobin bronze piston rod. Piston 
is of double cup leather type. 

The valves are of durable, 
flexible rubber, spring operated. 
There are two suction and two 
discharge valves, all being 



mounted on the same plate. 

A drip arrester on the piston 
rod prevents the water from 
the pump working along the 
rod into the crankcase. 

The removal of one stud bolt 
in the pump bonnet provides 
quick and complete access to 
the valves, gaskets, etc. 

An outside relief valve, set to 
open at 65 pounds pressure, 
protects the system from over- 
pressure if the motor control 
switch fails to open quickly 
enough. 

Overload protection in the 
form of a thermal relay, can be 
attached to the motor at only a 
slight additional cost. This de- 
vice trips automatically and 
opens the line circuit in case of 
trouble. It has no fuses — 
nothing to "blow" — nothing to 
replace. A push of the button 
and the relay is reset! 

A strainer, located in the suc- 
tion passage prevents foreign 
matter from getting into the 
water box. 

In every detail the pump is 
modern. It is quality - built 
through and through. It pos- 
sesses features not to be found 
even in pumps of a much high- 
er price range — and its price — 
complete — is well within the 
reach of the modest purse !

The pump is designed to 
pump against a discharge pres- 
sure of 40 pounds maximum. 
Practically noiseless in opera- 
tion. 

Automatic, Self-Oiling 

Operation is automatic. The 
pump starts when the pressure 
in the tank drops to 20 pounds 
and stops when the tank pres- 
sure is built up to 40 pounds. 

It is also self-oiling. The 
crankcase serves as an oil reser- 
voir. Oil needs changing only 
about once a year. Very little 
attention necessary. 

Tanks 

The tanks are carefully made 
and welded in our own factories, 
and are thoroughly galvanized 
both inside and out. Tested for 
125 pounds pressure. 

Motor 

The motor is an F-M repul- 
sion type, single phase, J / 4 H.P. 
rated on a continuous duty 
basis. 



Control 

The base of the motor control 
switch forms a conduit box con- 
taining a protective relay which 
prevents damage to the motor 
in case of an overload or low 
voltage condition on the line.

An air volume regulator is 
also furnished as standard 
equipment with all tank outfits. 
This automatically maintains 
the proper volume of air in the 
pressure tank; eliminates the 
possibility of water logged or 
air bound tanks ; does away with 



excessive starting and stopping 
of the motor and prevents water 
hammer in the pipe lines. 

Pump Details 

Two bearing, drop forged 
steel crankshafts, bronze con- 
necting rods and connecting rod 
bearings, tobin bronze piston 
rods. The pistons are of the 
double cup leather type. 

The valves are of durable, 
flexible rubber, spring operated. 
There are four suction and four 
discharge valves; two suction 
and two discharge valves being 
on each plate. 

A drip arrester on each pis- 
ton rod prevents water from the 
pump working along the rods 
into the crankcase. Knurled 
packing nuts on the rods make 
it easy to tighten the packing. 

The removal of two stud bolts 
in the bonnet (see illustration) 
provides easy access to the 
valves, gaskets, etc. — an exclu- 
sive Fairbanks-Morse feature. 

An outside relief valve, set 
to pop at 65 pounds pressure, 
protects the system from over- 
pressure if the motor control 
switch fails to trip promptly. 

A strainer, located in the suc- 
tion passage, prevents foreign 
matter from getting into the 
water box.

The Fairbanks-Morse 500 gallon Shallow Well Water System pictured 
above is a heavy duty, large capacity unit recommended particularly 
for larger residences, estates, country homes, stock farms, etc., where the 
water demands are unusually severe. Never before has a pump of this 
substantial design been made part of a water system unit to sell at a 
popular price. It is a real power pump of construction to be found only 
in commercial and industrial pumps built to withstand the rigors of that 
class of service.

This new 500 gallon F-M 
Shallow Well Water System is 
without question one of the 
most substantial and most effi- 
cient water systems ever put on 
the market. It is a real power 
unit, capable of delivering full 
500 gallons per hour actual ca- 
pacity against a maximum oper- 
ating pressure of 40 pounds 
equivalent to 92 feet. It is ad- 
mirably suited for any shallow 
well pumping where a capacity 
beyond the range of the 200 and 
250 gallon pumps is desired. 

Like the 250 gallon unit, the 
500 gallon system is furnished 
in three different combinations 
— one with 35 or 70 gallon tank 
on a neat steel base as shown 
on the previous page, another 
where the pump is mounted on 
top of a 12 gallon tank and the 
third modification is the pump 
unit alone without tank for 
those installations where the 
storage tank is already in- 
stalled. 

Duplex Power Pump 

The pump is duplex design — 
two cylinders, two pistons, etc. 
It is compact, symmetrical in 
outline, has no unsightly pro- 
jecting parts, extremely simple 
in construction and practically 
noiseless in operation. Further- 
more it is double acting, which 
with the duplex design, means 
there are four suction and four 
discharge valves in the pump 
bonnet. Thus unusual valve 
area is provided for the water 
passages, a factor that contrib- 
utes greatly to the quietness 
and efficiency of the pump. 

Quiet in Operation 

The fundamental design of 
this water system assures a 
smooth operating pump. The 



total absence of gears, both in- 
ternal and external, together 
with the Flex-Mor "V" belt 
drive makes it an extremely 
quiet pump. In spite of its

many desirable features and its 
distinctive design and in spite 
of the fact that this water sys- 
tem is complete with all control 
equipment, etc., it is offered at 
a price that is extremely low. 

Automatic, Self-Oiling 

This system is completely 
automatic in operation — start- 
ing when the pressure in the 
tank drops to 20 pounds and 
stopping automatically when 



the tank pressure is built up to 
40 pounds. 

The pump is self-oiling. No 
grease cups. The base of the 
power end serves as an oil res- 
ervoir. All that is necessary is 
to fill the oil reservoir and the 
pump lubrication takes care of 
itself, all parts being lubricated 
automatically. 

The crankshaft is equipped 
with oil splashers which throw 
oil into auxiliary reservoirs, 
these being connected by lead- 



Twenty 



ers to the main bearings. Sur- 
plus oil from the bearings 
drains back into the crankcase. 
An abundant supply of oil is 
also thrown through another 
leader and the crossheads are 
kept flooded continually. 

Tanks 

The tanks are carefully made 
and welded in our own factor- 
ies. Galvanized both inside and 
out. Tested for 125 pounds 
pressure. 

Motor 

The motor is an F-M repul- 
sion type, single phase y 2 H.P., 
rated on a continuous duty 
basis. 

Control 

The automatic motor control 
switch, which starts and stops 
the pump is located on top of 
the motor. The base of the 
switch forms a conduit box con- 
taining a protective relay which 
prevents damage to the motor 
in case of an overload or low 
voltage condition on the line. 

An air volume regulator is 
also furnished as standard 
equipment with all tank outfits. 
This automatically maintains 
the proper volume of air in the 
water tank ; eliminates the pos- 
sibility of water logged or air 
bound tanks ; does away with 
excessive starting and stopping 
of the motor and prevents water 
hammer in the pipe lines. 

Pump Details 

The water box and frame are 



cast in one piece and machined 
at a single setting so that prop- 
er alignment of all bearings, 
crossheads and cylinders is as- 
sured.

The crankshaft is drop forged 
steel of liberal diameter. The 
relation of the cranks are such 
that in combination with the 
duplex feature of the pumps, a 
steady flow of water is assured. 

Crankshaft bearings are 
bronze and removable. The 
crossheads are of brass and 
move in accurately bored guides. 

The connecting rod is a brass 
forging. Crosshead pin bear- 
ings and crank pin bearings are 
of forged brass integral with

provided with a packing ring 
which acts as a drip arrester 
and prevents the water from 
working back along the piston 
rod to the crankcase. 

The cylinders are of % inch 
seamless drawn brass tubing, 
securely pressed under pressure 
into the water box frame. 

Lastly the pump is very ac- 
cessible. Bearing end plates are 
removable and are of sufficient 
size to permit the withdrawal 
of the crankshaft should this be 
necessary. It is only necessary 
to remove the water box bonnet,

For general pumping where the

As a supplement to their elec- 
tric shallow well water systems 
of 200, 250 and 500 gallon capa- 
cities, designed to operate 
against discharge pressures up 
to 40 pounds; Fairbanks-Morse 
also build a complete line of 
larger pumps for shallow well 
service, known as the Self-Oil- 
ing Typhoon. These pumps are 
built in capacities from 600 to 
5000 gallons per hour and for 
discharge pressures up to 100 
lbs. which is equivalent to 230 
feet. 

These Self-Oiling Typhoon 
water systems are examples of 
what can be accomplished when 
the same engineering consid- 
erations employed in the manu- 
facture of large pumping units 
are incorporated in pumps of 
the more popular capacities. 
In the Typhoon water systems 
you will find the principles of 
up-to-date pump design fol- 
lowed in such a way that the re- 
sult is a marvel of simplicity. 
You will find construction de- 
tails and engineering ideas that 
could not possibly be incorpor- 
ated in a pump of this price 
class if it were not for the ex- 
traordinary skill of F-M de- 
signers and the unusual effici- 
ency of F-M production. 

For example, note the 600 gal- 
lon, which is the smallest size. 
Here we have, not a 300 gallon 
house pump speeded up to dou- 



ble its capacity and to overtax 
its ability for the sake of meet- 
ing a printed specification, but 
a real 600 gallon pump designed 
from the ground up to deliver 
600 gallons per hour and to 
withstand an operating pres- 
sure of 100 pounds. The larger 
sizes are just as conservatively 
rated. 

Duplex Design 

The pumping unit of these 
water systems is of the duplex, 
double acting design. The com- 
plete absence of gears makes it 
an exceptionally quiet operat- 
ing pump so that it can be in- 
stalled anywhere without fear 
of annoyance. 

These pumps are generally 
used for supplying water under 
pressure to large stock farms, 
country estates, or any other

For the sake of convenience 
the 600 gallon and 1000 gallon

when furnished for 100 pounds pressure. 



supplied on special order for 
100 lbs. operating pressure. 

Pressure Tank 

The tank furnished with 
the complete systems is electri- 
cally welded and built for an 
operating pressure of 75 pounds, 
being subjected in manufacture 
to a test pressure of 150 lbs. It 
is carefully galvanized inside 
and out. A pressure gauge is 
part of the tank equipment as 
well as an automatic air regu- 
lator which prevents the sys- 
tem from becoming either wa- 
ter-logged or air bound. An air 
chamber is regularly furnished 
with the pump. Relief valve, 
union, gate valve, nipples, pres- 
sure switch, etc., are all includ- 
ed in the regular pump-to-tank 
piping shown in the illustra- 
tions. 

Fresh Water Attachment 

The outfits as illustrated in 
Figure 25 are identical in serv- 



ice with those just described ex- 
cept the fresh water attachment 
is included. This attachment 
will permit of drawing water 
directly from the source of sup- 
ply without passing through 
the storage tank. This feature 
is particularly desirable where 
a large storage tank is used. 
With tanks smaller than 220 
gallon capacity the fresh water 
attachment rarely is necessary 
and it is not recommended. 

Motors 

The motor used is of F-M 
make, designed for continu- 
ous, full load operation. It is 
an exceptionally high grade 
motor, conforming in every de- 
tail to the exacting standards 
which have established Fair- 
banks-Morse as leaders in the 
design and manufacture of 
electric power machinery, 

Flex-Mor Drive 

The drive is the Flex-Mor 
"V" belt used extensively by 



Twenty-four 



Fairbanks-Morse for heavy duty 
power transmission in munici- 
pal and industrial pumping and 
generating service. It is a

*These outfits are standard with the motor mounted on top of the pump. When a motor other than the standard 60 cycle single 
phase is required, the motor is mounted tandem on an extended steel base which increases the list price of the pump unit $10.00 beyond 
the regular addition for the special motor as given on page 84. 

With the exception of the 7 Vz H.P. motor (which is 3 phase) the above prices cover outfits with 110 or 220 volt, 60 cycle, single phase motors- 
If direct current or special cycle motors are required, see table on page 84 for additions to make for the motor as well as additions for the special starting 
equipment when the latter is necessary. 

**If the 3 H.P. single phase motor is used on 110 volts, a secondary starter should be 
used in addition to the standard pressure switch. See table on page 84. The starter is not 
necessary with the 3 H.P. motor in 220 ro 440 volts. 

|A secondary starter (in addition to the regular pressure switch) should be used with the 
motor in the case of all 5 H.P. and 7 '/ 2 table on H.P. ratings. See page 84 for prices. 

Pressure Control : — Where motor is to be controlled automatically by means of pressure 
in the pneumatic tank, use the No. 9014 pressure switch (or the No. 9013) with secondary 
starter if the secondary starter is required. 

PUMPS FOR OPEN TANK SERVICE:— There is no difference in the pump unit when 
used for open tank service. All that it is necessary to do is to operate with the air snifter valve 
closed when pumping into an open tank.

Electricity is not necessary to enjoy the profits and conveniences 
of running water under pressure. The Fairbanks-Morse IC Z M 
Engine Driven Typhoon Water Systems described here are for 
lifts of 22 feet or less and are for use where electricity is not 
available. Built complete by Fairbanks-Morse, satisfactory per- 
formance of the combination as a unit is assured. Built in 
five sizes— 600 to 5000 gallons per hour.

The advantages of centralized 
responsibility in the purchase 
of a water system of this kind, 
both ends of which, engine and 
pump, are made by one manu- 
facturer, are very apparent. In 
addition to getting a combina- 
tion in which both the pump 
and the driver are particularly 
adapted for operation as a unit 
there is no shifting of responsi- 
bility in case either part of the 
equipment fails to measure up 
to the required standard of sat- 
isfaction. 

Where electricity is not avail- 
able these units will afford a 
very satisfactory and depend- 
able means of supplying run- 
ning water under pressure. The 
power unit is the famous F-M 
"Z" engine, known all over the 
world as one of the most de- 
pendable gasoline engines made. 
The pump is the popular F-M 
Self - Oiling Typhoon and the 
drive is the F-M Flex-Mor — 
the most approved and up-to-

date method of power transmis- 
sion on the market. The com- 
plete combination is tested as a 
unit in the F-M factory before 
shipment, assuring a perfect 
operating assembly. 

Service 

These units are widely used 
for supplying water under pres- 
sure for large stock farms, 
country estates, factories, green- 
houses, irrigating purposes and 
any other service where a large 
amount of water is required 
and electric current is not avail- 
able. 

The 600 gallon and 1000 gal- 
lon sizes, the ones most com- 
monly used for general pres- 
sure tank service, are offered 
complete with pump - to - tank 
piping, pressure tank and en- 
gine ignition grounding switch 
to stop the engine when the re- 
quired pressure in the tank is 
reached.

Tanks 



The tanks regularly listed 
with the complete engine oper- 
ated pressure tank systems are 
of electrically welded construc- 
tion designed for 75 pounds 
working pressure and are sub- 
jected to a test pressure of 150 
pounds per square inch before 
leaving the factory. Inasmuch 
as the operating pressure range 
for ordinary water system serv- 
ice, engine-operated, is 30 to 
50 pounds the standard tank has 
a very liberal factor of safety. 

The pump itself, however, is 
designed for a maximum of 100 
pounds operating pressure and 
extra heavy tanks for 100 
pounds working pressure (200 
pounds test) can be furnished 
on special order where it is de- 
sired to operate the pump at 
this higher pressure. 

Tanks can be furnished either 
black or galvanized finish. The 




Twenty-seven 



F-M ENGINE DRIVEN SELF-OILING TYPHOON WATER SYSTEMS 




black tanks are painted with 
two coats of preservative paint ; 
the galvanized tanks are gal- 
vanized inside and out. 

Automatic Air Control 

The complete engine - oper- 
ated pressure tank systems are 
provided with automatic air 
control. This device, which is 
mounted in the tank, is con- 
nected by means of a copper 
tube to the air snifter on the 
pump and by automatically clos- 
ing or opening the air snifter 
line, according to the water 
level variations in the tank, the 
correct proportion of air for 
most efficient operation of the 
system is maintained. Thus the 
tank is prevented from becom- 
ing either water-logged or air 
bound. A pressure gauge is 
regularly furnished as a part 
of the standard accessories on 
the complete tank outfits. 

Automatic Stop 

Being engine driven, the com- 
plete pressure tank systems will 
not start automatically, but the 
engine ignition switch located 
in the tank is connected to 
ground the ignition and stop 
the engine when the pressure in 



the tank builds up to 50 pounds. 
All that it is necessary to do is 
to see there is oil and fuel in 
the engine, give it a turn and 
let it run. When the tank is 
pumped up to the proper pres- 
sure the engine will stop auto- 
matically. 

Easy Starting 

The F-M "Z" engine used on 
the power end of these combi- 
nations has the reputation of 
being the easiest starting en- 
gine on the market. It has been 
a more or less general opinion 
in the past that a large storage

phoon Water Systems.

tank is always necessary in con- 
nection with an engine operated 
system because of the difficulty 
in getting the engine in opera- 
tion. This, however, does not 
apply to Fairbanks - Morse en- 
gine operated systems. You 
may use a tank as small as 220 
gallons capacity if you desire 
to keep the cost at a minimum 
because the engine is not tem- 
peramental — it is always ready 
to start. 

Hish Tension Type "R M 
Magneto 

Aside from the quality of 
workmanship in the engine it- 
self the chief contributing fac- 
tor to the easy starting feature 
is the Type "R" High Tension 
Rotary Magneto made by Fair- 
banks-Morse exclusively for the 
"Z" engine. This magento de- 
livers a hot, fat spark necessary 
for easy starting. It also has a 
number of other unusual fea- 
tures that eliminate entirely the 
annoying troubles that have 
been experienced in the past 
with engine ignition. 

For instance, it is sealed 
against dirt, dust and moisture. 
There is no necessity whatever 
for breaking the seals thereby 
destroying the moisture-proof 
enclosure. The matter of lu- 
brication is taken care of in the 
internal design of the magneto. 

There are no adjustments of 
any kind to make on the mag- 
neto such as the adjustment of 
points, bearings, etc. It is guar- 
anteed to function properly. It 



Twenty-eight 



F-M ENGINE DRIVEN SELF-OILING TYPHOON WATER SYSTEMS 



carries on its end plate a defi- 
nite guaranty date of one year 
and if it fails to function at any 
time within that period it will 
be replaced free of charge with 
another magneto provided the 
seals are not broken. 

Self-Oiling Engine 

Not only is the pump self-oil- 
ing but the engine likewise is 
of the self-oiling type. The 
crank case serves as an oil reser- 
voir supplying oil to the bear- 
ings, the pistons, etc., whenever 
the engine is in operation. All 



that is required to take care of 
the lubrication problem is to see 
that the crank cases of both the 
engine and the pump are prop- 
erly supplied with oil. The mag- 
neto needs no atention what- 
ever. 

The Pump 

In the Self-Oiling Typhoon 
pump, which forms the pump 
end of the assembly, you will 
find principles of up - to - date 
pump design followed in such a 
way that the result is a marvel 



of simplicity and harmony. You 
will find construction details 
and engineering ideas that 
could not possibly be incorpor- 
ated in a pump of this price 
class were it not for the extraor- 
dinary skill of Fairbanks-Morse 
designers and the unusual effi- 
ciency of Fairbanks-Morse pro- 
duction methods. 

Duplex Design 

The pump unit is of duplex 
design and double acting. Com- 
plete specifications follow.

DUPLEX GEARLESS SELF-OILING TYPHOON PUMPS 



General Design of F-M 
Self- Oiling Typhoon Pumps 



T T T 

Fig. 32. The Duplex, Gearless, Self-Oiling 

Typhoon Power Pump shown below is one 

of the most popular shallow well pumps on 

the market. 

T ▼ T 



In general, the design of the 
Duplex Self-Oiling Typhoon is 
a distinct departure from the 
old style of pump ordinarily of- 
fered for this class of service. 
It is one of the most popular 
pumps ever made. All working 
parts are completely enclosed, 
fully protected from dirt and 
injury; at the same time all 
parts are easy of access. 

The compact symmetrical de- 
sign of the pump is also very 
pleasing to the eye. There are 
no unsightly projecting parts. 
Its stream line contour, its sub- 
stantial base, in fact its entire 
appearance reflect externally 
the smooth working mechanism 
contained inside the frame. The 
construction is simple. There 
are no intricate parts which re- 
quire frequent adjustment. It 
is practically noiseless in oper- 
ation, and it is recommended 
for those installations where 
quietness is essential. 

The detailed specifications 
following cover a pump fitted 
for cold fresh water. The pump 
may be specially fitted for hot 
water, brine, oil and other liq- 
uids. 




Duplex Construction 

The Self-Oiling Typhoon is 
a duplex pump, even the 600 
gallon size is of the duplex de- 
sign — two cylinders, two pis- 
tons, etc. Furthermore the 
pump is double acting, which, 
with the duplex design, means 




there are four suction and four 
discharge valves in the pump 
bonnet (the larger sizes have 
eight). Thus unusual valve area 
is provided for the water pas- 
sages, a factor that contributes 
greatly to the quietness and ef- 
ficiency of the pump. 

Quiet In Operation 

The fundamental design of the 
Self-Oiling Typhoon assures 
a smooth operating pump. The 
total absence of gears, internal 
and external, makes it an ex-

and distinctive design it is of- 
fered at a price that is competi- 
tive with the ordinary single 
cylinder gear pump of much 
cheaper construction. 

Lubrication 

The pump is self - oiling. 
There are no grease cups to fill. 
The base of the power end 
serves as an oil reservoir. All 
that is necessary is to fill the oil 
reservoir and the oiling prob- 
lem takes care of itself, all parts 
being lubricated automatically. 

The crank shaft is equipped 
with oil splashers by means of 
which the oil is thrown into 
auxiliary reservoirs which are 
connected by means of leaders 
to the main bearings. The sur- 
plus oil from the bearings 
drains back into the crank case. 

An abundant supply of oil is 
also thrown through another 
leader and the crossheads are 
kept continually flooded. This 
improved system of lubrication 
contributes greatly to the life 
of these important working 
parts of the power end. 



Water Box and Frame 

The water box and frame are 
cast in one piece and machined 
at a single setting so that prop- 
er alignment of the bearings, 
crossheads and cylinders is as- 
sured. 




Drop Forged Crank Shaft 

The crank shaft is a drop 
forging of liberal diameter, with 
ground journals and crank pins 
to give a high grade bearing sur- 
face. The relation of the cranks 
such that in combination 



are

The bearing end plates, which 
are also removable are of suffi- 
cient size to permit the with- 
drawal of the crank shaft 
should this ever be necessary.

of all bronze and are removable. 



The cross heads are of cast 
iron in all cases with the excep- 
tion of the 600 and 1000 gallon 
pumps. In these sizes they are 
of brass. All cross heads are of 
liberal diameter and move in 
accurately bored guides. 

Connecting Rods

of high grade babbitt, integral 
with the rod on the 1000, 1500, 
and 2500 gallon pumps ; remov- 
able and renewable on the 5000 
gallon size.

Piston rods of tobin bronze. 
Pistons are of double cup leath- 
er type with anti-friction bear-

Stuffing Box 

The stuffing box and gland 
are of brass. The gland cap is 
provided with a packing ring 
which acts as a drip arrester, 
and prevents the water from 
working back along the piston 
rod to the crankcase. 



Cylinders and Valves 

The cylinders are of %" seam- 
less drawn brass tubing, secure- 
ly pressed under pressure into 
the water box frame. 

There are four suction valves 
and four discharge valves on 
the 600 and 1000 gallon pumps. 
The larger sizes have eight. The 
valves are of soft rubber, seat- 
ing on bronze seats. A coiled 
spring on the valve stem holds 
the valve in place and imparts 
the necessary quick action to 
its operation. 

Self-Priming 

The discharge valve plate has 
four bleeder holes, one for each 
displacement chamber. Any 
head on the discharge side will 
force water through the bleed- 
er holes, flooding the suction 
valves, thereby making the 
pump self-priming. 

The pump has three priming 
openings — two back of the bon- 
net and one in the bonnet, 
through which pump may be 
primed when first put in oper- 
ation. 

Air Snifter 

An air snifter valve to pre- 
vent water logging in pressure 
tank systems is part of the reg- 
ular equipment on all pumps. 
When the pump is used for 
open tank pumping all that it is 
necessary to do is to close the 
snifter valve.

economical 



The Fairbanks-Morse standard 
automatic sump pump here de- 
scribed is a leader in the field of 
dependable, inexpensive high-grade 
pumps for general sump service. It 
may be used for pumping water out 
of basements, railroad track scale 
pits, ditches, excavations, low wa- 
ter spots or any other places where 
protection is desired against seep- 
age and flood waters. 

It is completely automatic in 
operation — starts without any at- 
tention whenever necessary and 
continues pumping until the pit or 
sub-floor drainage system is com- 
pletely pumped out. Once in- 
stalled in the pit it affords depend- 
able protection — day and night — 
against the destructive forces of 
seepage and flood waters. 

Simple, Practical Design 

The pump is of the centrifugal 
type with semi-open type impeller. 
The impeller, shell, cover, motor 
bracket, standard and pump base 
are of cast iron, cadmium plated, 
non-rusting. 

Impeller Shaft 

The impeller shaft is of stain- 
less steel, non-rusting, and is sup- 
ported at the top by a special ball 
bearing, requiring little attention 
in the way of lubrication. The 
under-water bearing requires no 
lubrication whatever. 

Motor 

The motor regularly furnished 
as standard is of the clutch type, 



% H.P., 1750 R.P.M., 60 cycle sin- 
gle phase 110 volts with thrust 
bearing for vertical operation. A 
repulsion induction motor or a mo- 
tor for operation on a direct cur- 
rent or special cycle circuit can be 
substituted when necessary at a 
small additional cost. 



/Accessories 

The motor is provided with a 
protective cutout to guard against 
burn-out due to overload or low 
line voltage. The motor control 
switch and cutout are built in the 
same box. A heavy copper float 
on the switch actuating rod rises 
and falls with the water level in 
the sump, and controls the starting 
and stopping of the motor. Ten 
feet of flexible rubber covered 
moisture-proof wire with moulded 
rubber imbedded plug furnished as 
standard. Plugs into any light 
socket. Motor to switch connec- 
tion fully enclosed — no exposed 
wiring. 

Sump 

Sump should not be over two 
feet deep, using tile of desired size, 
putting a floor at the bottom. A 
circular screen at the base of the 
pump prevents heavy foreign mat- 
ter from reaching the pump inlet. 
A protective sump cover to fit 
standard sewer crocks will be sup- 
plied at nominal cost.

When to use a 
Deep Well Pump 



Fig. 50. Unlike the shallow well pump 
which can be placed in any convenient 
location within a reasonable distance from 
the source of supply, the deep well pump 
head must be installed directly over the 
well. 



If the vertical distance from 
the bottom of the pump to the 
water level is more than 22 
feet, a deep well pumping unit 
must be used. 

This unit consists of a power 
head, a well cylinder, which is 
suspended in the well by means 
of a drop pipe, and a pump rod 
which connects the piston rod 
of the power head to the plung- 
er of the well cylinder. 

When the system is in opera- 
tion, the water in the cylinder 
is forced up to the surface 
through the drop pipe and then 
into the storage tank. From 
the storage tank it is forced 
through the house pipes and to 
the fixtures just as in a shal- 
low well system — by the pres- 
sure of the air in the tank in 
the case of a pneumatic system 
or by means of the gravity head 
in the case of an overhead tank 
system. 

The important difference be- 
tween a shallow well pump and 
a deep well pump is that the 
former relies entirely upon suc- 
tion to draw the water to the 
surface. The deep well pump 
on the other hand, raises the 
water by means of a cylinder 
submerged in the well, the cyl- 
inder being operated by a pump 
rod from the pump. Because of 
its principle of operation, there- 
fore, the deep well pump must 
always be installed directly 
over the well. 



Three Types of Wells 

Deep wells are primarily of 

three types: 1. Driven; 2. 

Drilled or cased; 3. Open or 
dug. 

In the driven well a point is 
attached to the well pipe and 
the well pipe is then driven 
down until it reaches the water 
bearing stratum. These wells 
are usually of small diameter — 
2 inches or even less. The well 
pipe serves both as casing and 
drop pipe. Ordinarily a driven 
well has a depth of 50 feet or 
less, as it is difficult to drive 
points deeper than this. 

The drilled or cased well is 
by far the most common of the 
deep wells. Drilled wells some- 
times go down to a depth of 
several hundred feet and run 
from 3 or 4 inches in diameter 
to a foot or even more. The 
well is cased as the drilling 
proceeds, although sometimes 
when the drilling is done 
through rock strata the casing 
is omitted. The drop pipe, with 
cylinder attached, is lowered in 
the casing until the cylinder is 
submerged in water. 

The open or dug well is sel- 
dom made nowadays because of 
the difficulty and expense in- 
volved in digging and bricking. 
A dug well will hardly ever go 
below forty or fifty feet. In 
this well the drop pipe with 
cylinder attached is lowered 
until the cylinder is submerged

in water just as is the case of 
the drilled well. 

The Eureka Cylinder 

The Eureka cylinder is quite 
commonly used in driven wells 
because of the small diameter of 
this type of well. It differs 
from the ordinary cylinder in 
that its method of installation 
eliminates the necessity of an 
external coupling for well pipe 
and consequently a cylinder 
larger in diameter can be used 
than would be possible if a cyl- 
inder with external coupling 
had to go in a well of this small 
diameter. 

The Eureka cylinder is set in 
place, after the well point is 
driven, by means of seating tool 
shown in the illustration on this 
page. This seating tool is at- 
tached to the pump rod, the 
tool is then inserted in the cyl- 
inder and the cylinder crowded 
down the well pipe to its proper 
position below the water level. 
The dog spring coupling holds 
firmly to the inside walls of the 
pipe while the cylinder proper 
is revolved clockwise by the 
seating tool. As it screws down 
on the coupling, it expands the 
rubber packing between the 
cylinder and coupling, locking 
both securely in the pipe. The 
seating tool can then be with- 
drawn, and removed from 
pump rod. The foot valve is 
then screwed into the plunger, 
and the latter onto the pump

lowered in place and seated in

clockwise so as to unscrew the

How to figure a 

Deep Wei Water System Job 



Fairbanks-Morse sales infor- 
mation and prices are figured 
out in such a way as to make it 
easy not only to determine the 
right size and style of pump for 
the job at hand, but also to ar- 
rive at the correct price with 
the least effort. 

All that is necessary is to de- 
termine the maximum depth to 



the water while pumping and 
the amount of water the cus- 
tomer requires. Then turn to 
the capacity table and select the 
size head, horse power and size 
of well cylinder and pressure 
cylinder required. Then check 
up to be sure the well cylinder 
required will fit into the drop 
pipe in the customer's well ; also

check with the customer to be 
sure the well will yield the 
number of gallons per hour he 
is after. After doing this you 
can secure from the price page, 
price of the system complete 
less the pump rod, the well cyl- 
inder and the drop pipe. The 
matter of adding the well cylin- 
der is a simple one, likewise the 
matter of quoting on the pump 
rod and drop pipe, both of 
which vary with the depth of 
the well on the particular job 
being considered. 

As the Deep Well Plant must 
be installed directly over the 
well, oftentimes in cold locali- 
ties where this necessitates 
placing the pump in an unheal- 
ed pump house out in the yard, 
a frost-proof attachment is nec- 
essary. With the frost-proof 
attachment it is possible to op- 
erate the pump without bring- 
ing any of the water above the 
frost line until it gets to the 
point where it is to be used. 

Determining The Horsepower 

However, to give you a better 
understanding of deep well 
pumping we will illustrate how 
"horsepower" is figured. 

The first thing that must be 
known is the maximum depth 
that it is necessary to go to get 
water, and the second thing the 
"weight" of the water that has 
to be lifted per minute. For 
example : Suppose the custom- 
er had to go down 100 feet to 
get water; that he had a 2% 
inch cylinder in his well ; that 
he had a 8 inch stroke pump 
head that at a certain speed 
gave him 50 strokes per minute, 
how much horsepower would be 
required? 

First get the pounds per min- 
ute that the pump will have to 
lift. Turn to cylinder table 
No. 6 in the engineering sec- 
tion located in the back of this 
book. You will note a 2^ 



inch cylinder with 8 inch stroke 
has a capacity per stroke of 
.2057 gallons. At the rate of 50 
strokes a minute the pump 
would lift 50 x. 2057 or 10.285 
gallons per minute. We know 
1 gallon of water weighs 8 1/3 
pounds; therefore 10.285 gal- 
lons would weigh 85.8 pounds. 
85.8 pounds lifted through a 
distance of 100 feet is the equiv- 
alent of 100 x 85.8 or 8580 foot- 
pounds. 

33,000 foot pounds per minute 
equal one horsepower, therefore 
8580 foot pounds are equivalent 
to 

3 8 3 5 Q 8 ° or .26 horse power. This 
is the theoretical power re- 
quired on the basis of the pump 
having an operating efficiency 
of 100%. The actual efficiency, 
however, will probably run only 
$0% or 40% so the theoretical 
horse power should be multi- 
plied by about 3 to get the ac- 
tual horse power required. In 
this case it would be 3 x .26 or 
.78 H.P. actual. 

It is not necessary for you to 
go to all this trouble in order 
to sell a F-M deep well head, 
however. The horse power cal- 
culations are all taken care of 
for you on the pages showing 
the prices. All you have to do 
is to determine the maximum 
depth to the water while pump- 
ing, find out the amount of wa- 
ter required, then go to the 
table and get the horse power. 

Pressure Tank Systems 

Where a pump is required to 
discharge against pressure in a 
pneumatic tank, this will make 
an added load on the pump. 
Suppose the pump referred to 
in the previous example had to 
discharge into a tank, the pres- 
sure in which varied from 20 to 
40 pounds. 

Take the maximum pressure 
(40 pounds) and reduce this to 



feet. This means that the pump, 
in addition to lifting the water 
100 feet to get it out of the well, 
will have to lift it the equiva- 
lent of 92.40 feet (40x2.31) in 
order to get it into the tank 
against 40 pounds pressure. 
The "pounds" of water would 
remain the same because we 
have done nothing to either the 
size of the cylinder, the length 
of the stroke, or the number of 
strokes. Therefore in this case 
the theoretical horse power 
would be 

192.40 (ft.) x 85.8 (lbs.) 

~ 33000 - 5 ° H,P - 

instead of .26 as in the previous 
case. 

Advantage of Pressure Cylinder 

Fairbanks-Morse Home Wa- 
ter Systems do not do all of the 
work on the up-stroke however. 
On the up-stroke they lift the 
water into a pressure cylinder 
which is located just above the 
discharge opening of the pump. 
On the downstroke, when the 
well cylinder plunger is return- 
ing to its position at the bottom 
of the cylinder, the plunger of 
the pressure cylinder forces the 
water out through the discharge 
opening into the tank. 

It is very apparent that great- 
er operating efficiency can be 
secured from a deep well head 
designed upon these principles 
than from one on which the 
head has to do all of its work 
on the up-stroke and run idle 
on the down stroke. By check- 
ing capacity tables, it will be 
found that less horse power is 
invariably required with a 
Fairbanks-Morse head to get a 
certain number of gallons at a 
certain depth than is necessary 
in the case of a head that does 
not employ the pressure cylin- 
der principle of operation.

The Fairbanks-Morse Deep Well Pumps illustrated in this section have 
won for themselves an enviable reputation (or dependable performance 
on those installations where the vertical distance from the pump to the 
source of supply is greater than the 22 foot limit of the shallow well pump. 
Neat, compact, substantially built and efficient. Available in 6, 9 and 
12 inch strokes. Pressure cylinder included as standard equipment with 
all sizes. Equal distribution of load thus resulting on up and down 
strokes makes possible greater capacity or greater operating depth for a 
given size motor than that obtainable with the ordinary deep well pump.

For the sake of convenience 
the two smaller and more popu- 
lar sizes — namely the 6 and 9 
inch stroke pumps — are assem- 
bled as a compete unit for pres- 
sure service. These outfits are 
priced complete as illustrated 
in figures 53 and 55, with pump, 
motor, tank, pipe and control 
equipment — in fact everything 
needed for the installation. 
Nothing left to add with the 
exception of the pump rod, the 
well cylinder, the drop pipe and 
house service pipe connection. 

Pump Head 

The pump unit used in these 
water systems is the F-M Self- 
Oiling Pump Head, Type "C" 
in the 6" stroke size ; Type "B" 
in the 9" and 12" stroke. The 
working mechanism of each is 
fully described and illustrated 
on the pages following. 

Pressure Tank 

The tank is electrically 
welded and buit for an operat- 
ing pressure of 75 lbs., being 
subjected in manufacture to a 
test pressure of 150 pounds.

ment will permit of drawing 
water directly from the source

rarely is necessary and it is not 
recommended. 

Motors 

The motors used in these 
water systems are of the cus- 
tomary Fairbanks - Morse high 
quality construction. They are 
guaranteed to deliver their full 
horsepower rating under condi- 
tions of full load continuous 
operation without exceeding a 
temperature rise of 40° C above 
the surrounding room tempera- 
ture. Both the top mounted 
motors as used in the No. 6 
Type "C" assembly and the tan- 
dem mounted motors as used on 
the larger No. 9 and 12 Type 
"B" assemblies are provided 
with an adjustment for tighten- 
ing the belt. 

Flex-Mor Drive 

The drive is the Flex-Mor 
"V" belt used extensively by 
Fairbanks - Morse for heavy 
duty power transmission in mu- 
nicipal and industrial pumping 
and generating service. It is a 
clean, silent, positive drive re- 
quiring no lubrication what- 
ever. The Flex-Mor is one of 
the most satisfactory drives on 
the market from every operat- 
ing angle. 

Automatic in Operation 

The motor control pressure 
switch, mounted on the tank, 
automatically starts the pump 
when the pressure in the tank 
falls to 20 pounds and automat- 
ically stops it when the tank 
pressure reaches 40 pounds. 
The correct tank pressure for 
best operation is thus always 
maintained. 



Fig. 56. The No. 6 
Self-Oiling Type "C" 
pump-motor unit with 
end cover removed, 
showing the pressure 
cylinder and air com- 
pressor details. A 
pressure cylinder with 
two-leather plunger is 
furnished as part of 
the standard equip- 
ment with all of the 
pumps here described. 




Other Accessories 

Other accessories furnished 
with the complete tank systems 
illustrated include a relief valve 
as a protection against over 
pressure; a check valve to keep 
the water in the tank from be- 
ing forced back into the well; 
a shut-off valve, air tubing, 
union, ells, nipples, etc. A drive 
guard may be had where neces- 
sary at a small additional 
charge. 

Open Tank Pumping 

For open tank pumping all 
that is required is the pump- 
motor unit only (as illustrated 
in Figs. 56 and 57), less the air 
compressor. If the water has 
to be elevated above the pump 
discharge opening use the pres- 
sure tank capacity table instead 
of the open tank table. The 



open tank capacities are for dis- 
charge at the surface of the 
ground. 

One Undivided Responsibility 

Means One Undivided 

Guaranty 

In these water systems, the 
power unit, the pump unit and 
even the Flex - Mor drive are 
built by Fairbanks-Morse. This 
means these pumps are designed 
and built to function as a unit. 
They are tested as a unit in the 
F-M factory before shipment. 
Responsibility for the satisfac- 
tory performance of the entire 
outfit, therefore, is undivided. 
Lastly, parts for any part of the 
outfit can be obtained from a 
single source in case any are 
ever required. No other water 
system manufacturer can offer 
these features.

FAIRBANKS-MORSE 

Engine Driven Self-Oiling 
Deep Well Water Systems 
Types 



"B" and "C" 












Where electricity is not available and where the water level is more than 
22 feet below the surface of the ground, the Fairbanks-Morse U Z" 
Engine Driven Water Systems herein described are recommended. 
Capacities up to 1160 gallons per hour. Powered by the Fairbanks- 
Morse, world-famous "Z" engine. Here again the complete unit, pump 
and driver, are made by Fairbanks-Morse, centering in one place the 
complete responsibility for the satisfactory operation of the unit and 
facilitating the matter of securing repairs should any be required. 



Fig. 58, The No. 6 Self-Oiling Type "C" 
Wafer System is available as a complete 
package unit as shown above including 1 1/2 
H.P. "Z" Engine, tank, piping and Flex-Mor 
drive. Outfit No. 6728C-220B covers the 
unit complete with 220 gal. black tank.

Fairbanks-Morse Z" Engine Driven 

Deep Well Water Systems-- Types "B" and "C 



//W/ 



For general pumping service 
where electricity is not available 
and where the vertical distance 
from the pump to the source of 
supply is greater than 22 feet. 
Sizes 13^ H.P. Engine with No. 
6 Type M C M Pump; 3 H.P. En- 
gine with No. 9 Type "B" 
Pump. 



Where the owner does not 
have electricity the Fairbanks- 
Morse Engine Driven Water 
Systems, described here, afford 
a very satisfactory and depend- 
able means of supplying run- 
ning water under pressure for 
deep well service. 

The power unit is the fam- 
ous F-M "Z" Engine, known 
the world over for its depend- 
ability and economy in opera- 
tion. 

The pumps are of the self- 
oiling type; the engines like- 
wise are self-oiling. The drive 
is the Flex-Mor "V" belt— the 
most approved and up-to-date 
method of power transmission 
on the market. The complete 
outfit is assembled and tested 
as a unit in the F-M factory 
before shipment, assuring a 
perfect operating assembly. 

The advantages of central- 
ized responsibility in the pur- 
chase of a water system of this 
kind, both ends of which, en- 
gine and pump, are made by the 
same manufacturer, are very ap- 
parent. In addition to getting 
a combination in which both 
the pump and the driver are 
particularly adapted for oper- 
ation as a unit, there is no shift- 




ing of responsibility in case 
either part of the equipment 
fails to measure up to the re- 
quired standard of satisfaction. 



Se 



rvice 



The engine driven water sys- 
tems described here are offered 
in sizes up to 3 H.P. They are 
widely used for supplying wa- 
ter under pressure on farms, es- 
tates, plantations, ranches, golf 
courses, railroad stations, road- 
side filling stations, factories, 
country schools and churches, 
dairies and any other service 
where a large amount of water 
is required and electric current 
is not to be had. 

The engine driven assembly 
illustrated in Figure 58 is 
priced complete as you see it 
with nothing left to add with 
the exception of the pump rod, 
the well cylinder, the drop pipe 
and house service pipe connec- 
tions. Both air volume control 
and pressure operated ignition 
grounding switch for stopping 
the engine when the tank pres- 
sure reaches 50 lbs. are fur-

nished as part of the complete 
tank assemblies as well as com- 
plete pump-to-tank pipe and 
fittings consisting of relief 
valve, check valve, shut - off 
valve, union, ells, nipples, etc. 

Pressure Tanks 

The tanks regularly listed 
with the complete engine oper- 
ated pressure tank systems are 
of 220 gallons capacity, of elec- 
trically welded construction de- 
signed for 75 pounds working 
pressure and are subjected to 
a test pressure of 150 pounds 
per square inch before leaving 
the factory. Inasmuch as the 
operating pressure range for 
ordinary water system service, 
engine operated, is 30 to 50 
pounds, the standard tank has 
a very liberal factor of safety. 

A black tank is furnished as

SYSTEMS 



standard, but a galvanized tank 
can be substituted if desired 
at a slightly higher price. Also 
tanks larger than 220 gallons 
can be supplied if added stor- 
age capacity is needed. The 
black tanks are painted with 
two coats of preservative paint ; 
the galvanized tanks are thor- 
oughly galvanized inside and 
out. 

Automatic Air Control 

The complete engine - oper- 
ated pressure tank systems are 
provided with automatic air 
control. This device, which is 
mounted in the tank, acts as a 
float-operated air release valve 
and automatically maintains the 
correct proportion of air in the 
tank for most efficient opera- 
tion. There is thus no chance 
for the tank to become air 
bound. A pressure gauge is reg- 
ularly furnished as a part of 
the standard accessories on the 
complete tank outfits. 

Automatic Stop 

Being engine driven, the 
complete pressure tank system 
will not start automatically, but 
the engine ignition switch, lo- 
cated on the tank, is set to 
ground the ignition and stop 
the engine when the pressure 
in the tank builds up to 50 
pounds. Thus, all that it is nec- 
essary to do is to see that there 
is oil and fuel in the engine, 
give it a turn and let it run. 
When the tank is properly 
filled the pump will stop auto- 
matically. 

Easy Starting 

The Fairbanks - Morse "Z" 
engine used on the power end 
of these combinations has the 
reputation of being the easiest 
starting engine on the market. 
It has been a more or less gen- 
eral opinion in the past that a 
large storage tank is always 



necessary with an engine oper- 
ated system because of the dif- 
ficulty in getting the engine in 
operation. This does not ap- 
ply to F-M engine operated 
systems. You may use a tank 
as small as 220 gallons capacity 
if you desire to keep the cost 
at a minimum because the en- 
gine is not temperamental — it is 
always ready to start. 

High Tension Type M R" 
Magneto 

Aside from the quality of 
workmanship in the engine it- 
self, the chief contributing fac- 
tor to the easy starting feature 
is the Type "R" High Tension 
Rotary Magneto made by Fair- 
banks-Morse exclusively for 
the "Z" engine. This magneto 
delivers the hot, fat spark nec- 
essary for easy starting. It also 
has a number of other unusual 
features that eliminate entirely 
the annoying troubles that have 
been experienced in the past 
with engine ignition. 

It is sealed against dirt, dust 
and moisture. There is no ne- 
cessity whatever for breaking 
the seals thereby destroying

tary Magneto made by Fairbanks - Morse 
exclusively for the "Z" Engine, insures easy 
starting of all F-M engine driven water 
systems. 



the moisture proofing enclos- 
ure. The matter of lubrication 
is taken care of in the internal 
design of the magneto. 

There are no internal adjust- 
ments of any kind to make such 
as point adjustments, bearing 
adjustments, etc. It is guaran- 
teed to function properly. It 
carries on its end plate a def- 
inite guaranty date of one year 
and if it fails to function at any 
time within that period it will 
be exchanged without charge 
for a new magneto carrying the 
same guaranty provided the 
seals are not broken. 

Self-Oiling 

Not only is the pump self- 
oiling, but the engine likewise 
is of the self-oiling type. The 
crank case serves as an oil res- 
ervoir, supplying oil to the 
bearings, pistons, etc., when- 
ever the engine is in operation. 
All that is required to take care 
of the lubrication problem is to 
see that the crank cases of both 
the engine and the pump are 
properly supplied with oil. The 
magneto needs no attention 
whatever. 

The Pump 

In the Self-Oiling Type "B" 
and "C" Deep Well Pump 
Heads, which form the pump 
end of these engine driven as- 
semblies, you will find princi- 
ples of up-to-date pump design 
followed in a manner that re- 
sults in unusual simplicity of 
operation and strength of con- 
struction. All parts are abund- 
antly lubricated by means of a 
positive oiling system. This 
together with the double gear 
drive feature results in a per- 
fectly balanced load tending 
toward uninterrupted service 
and satisfactory performance. 

More detailed specifications 
of the pumps will be found on 
pages following.

They are correctly designed. 
The simplicity and strength of 
the mechanism in both the 
Types "R" and "C" pumps, to- 
gether with the fact that all 
working parts are abundantly 
lubricated by means of a posi-

imum amount of attention and 
low operating expense.

In both designs the entire 
working mechanism is enclosed 
in a cast iron base or main

the base casting in this way 
permits of a frame design 
which gives the pump greater 
rigidity, minimizes the possi- 
bility of strains and makes for 
an unusually strong and com- 
pact construction. This type 
of design also eliminates the 
need of any lugs, outside ribs 
or projections that might be- 
come broken. 

The frame casting is com- 
pletely machined in special jigs 
at one setting so that accurate 
alignment of all shafts and bear- 
ings is assured. Bearing shafts 
are of high grade machine 
steel. All shafts and working 
parts are readily removable. All 
the bearings are highly pol- 
ished steel on finished smooth 
cast iron. This combination 
forms a bearing that is espe-

perfect lubrication is assured 
because every bearing is flood- 
ed with oil at all times. 

Balanced Drive 

In both the Types "B" and 
"C" pump heads, the two steel 
drive pinions are machine cut 
integral with the pinion shaft 
to which is attached the drive 
pulley. This double drive fea- 
ture together with the fact that 
all other parts are in pairs, as 
well as the fact that the con- 
necting rod is located in the 
middle of the head between 
the two main crank gears, re- 
sults in a perfectly balanced 
load without side forces to tend 
to wear the working parts out 
of line. 

Positive Oiling System 

In both pumps the lower part 
of the base acts as the oil reser- 



voir from which the main gears 
carry the oil to the pinions. In 
addition to this splash oiling, a 
simple positive pump carries a 
continuous, copious stream of 
oil upward to all the parts 
reaching them through inter- 
communicating oil passages in 
the connecting rod and cross 
head mechanism. 



Discharge Chamber 

The discharge chamber is a 
separate casting which can be 
attached to the drop pipe and 
then bolted to the main base or 
frame casting. 

Note the manner in which 
the discharge chamber is sup- 
ported by the main base of the 
pump head. This is important 
as it carries the entire weight 
of the well pipe. The plunger

and lower valve of the well cyl- 
inder may be withdrawn when- 
ever necessary without disturb- 
ing the suction and discharge 
pipe connections. 

Air Compressor 

When used for pressure tank 
service an air compressor is 
necessary to replenish the air 
occasionally. When either style 
of pump head is ordered for 
pressure tank service, there- 
fore, it is fitted with an air 
compressor attachment, the pis- 
ton of which is driven from the 
upper end of the piston rod or 
cross-head. This provides a 
very simple, dependable and in- 
expensive way to keep the sys- 
tem supplied with air. 



Pressure Cylinder 

All Fairbanks-Morse deep 
well heads are furnished with 
a pressure cylinder which bolts 
to the discharge chamber of the 
pump. This pressure cylinder 
is equipped with a plunger of 
the double cup leather type. 
On the up-stroke of the pump 
the water from the well fills 
the pressure cylinder and on 
the downstroke it is forced, un- 
der pressure, from the pressure 
cylinder into the storage tank. 

The pressure cylinder per- 
mits of practically an equal di- 
vision of the load between the 
up and down strokes of the

pump. This results not only 
in greater efficiency of the 
pump but also in much smooth- 
er operation than if the entire 
load of lifting and forcing 
were done on the up-stroke 
alone. 

Because of the pressure cyl- 
inder method of operation, 
Fairbanks-Morse deep well 
pumps will pump more water 
from a given depth than the 
ordinary deep well pump of 
identical horse power. Or, with 
the same horse power applied, 
Fairbanks-Morse deep well 
pumps will work well cylin- 
ders at greater depths than a 
pump that does not have this 
desirable pressure cylinder 
feature. 

While the pressure cylinder 
is designed primarily for pres- 
sure tank service, it is also 
recommended for open tank 
service where the pump has to 
operate against any head on the 
discharge, such as that occa- 



sioned by a long run of dis- 
charge pipe or that imposed 
when the pump has to dis- 
charge into an open tank lo- 
cated above the level of the 
ground. 

For Belted Service 

The pumps for belted serv- 
ice, are regularly furnished 
with pulley and belt tightening 
idler for flat belt drive. This 
modification is for the man who 
already has a motor or engine 
and wishes to make up his own 
combination. However Fair- 
banks-Morse deep well pumps 
are available also as complete 
electric motor or engine oper- 
ated units and it is strongly 
urged that the pump be or- 
dered complete with power as 
in this way the responsibility 
for the satisfactory perform- 
ance of the entire unit will be 
centered in one place. Fair-

Type "DC" Water Systems 
or Deep Wells 



MM 




Fairbanks-Morse Type "DC, direct connected deep well pumps 
stand high in the estimation of their many users because of their excel- 
lency in design and reliability of performance. Compact — extremely 
simple — and self-oiling, requiring a minimum of attention. They operate 
quietly and efficiently. Especially adapted to installations in homes 
where complete enclosure is required as a protection to children. For 
construction details see pages following. 



Fig. 65. The Type "DC" pump can be fur- 
nished complete with pressure tank and ac- 
cessories as shown in illustration above, or 
the pump unit can be furnished separately 
for use in connection with an existing 
installation.

The Type "DC" electrically 
operated pump illustrated here, 
is unquestionably one of the 
highest grade deep well pumps 
on the market. It is unusually 
compact in design. Its interior 
mechanism, as will be noted 
from the illustrations shown on 
the next few pages, is a marvel 
of simplicity. Extra strength 
and durability characterize 
every working part. 

It is designed for deep well 
service — for pumping from 
driven, open or cased wells 
where the lift from the pump 
to the water level in the well is 
in excess of the 22 foot maxi- 
mum that is obtainable from 
the shallow well or suction type 
of pump. 

It is especially adaptable for 
general pumping service on 
farms, rural estates, planta- 
tions, ranches, or for apartment 
houses, small hotels, mills, fac- 
tories, country schools and 
churches, dairies, railroad tanks 
and stations, roadside filling 
stations, etc. 

Has Many Desirable Features 

The excellent design and 
sturdy construction of the Type 



Fig. 66. The unusual 
compactness and com- 
plete enclosure of the 
pump unit are clearly 
illustrated in this view. 
These desirable and 
distinguishing features 
make it particularly 
adapted to installation 
in small well pits. 




"DC" pump is fully described 
and clearly displayed on this 
and the next few pages. 

Sturdily Built Throughout 

In any deep well pump, funda- 
mental design is an all-impor- 
tant factor because of the na- 
ture of the load the pump has 
to handle. A pump that is not 
substantially designed, will not 
withstand the strain of the con- 
tinual lifting of the long pump 
rod and column of water in the 
drop pipe. A pump that is not 
properly balanced will be noisy 
in operation and consequently 
short-lived. A pump that is not 
free of lost motion will be com- 
plicated in construction and in- 
efficient in operation. A pump 
that does not have the matter of 
lubrication carefully and thor- 



oughly worked out will be a 
constant source of annoyance to 
the owner during its entire pe- 
riod of service because of ab- 
normal wearing of parts. 

In all of these details of 
fundamental and practical de- 
sign, the Fairbanks-Morse Type 
"DC" pump adheres to the most 
modern and approved methods 
of best engineering practice. 
The power end consists of a 
vertical ball bearing motor 
which is directly connected by 
means of a flexible coupling to 
the worm shaft that drives the 
pump, this type of construction 
having been chosen because of 
its quietness of operation. The 
worm shaft in turn operates in 
roller bearings, all of the thrust 
of the assembly falling on the 
lower worm shaft bearing. 



Fifty-tour 



FAIRBANKS -MORSE ELECTRIC DEEP WELL PUMPS 




There is no thrust action what- 
ever on the lower bearing of 
the motor. 

Completely Enclosed 

The direct connection thus 
resulting between the motor 
and the pump eliminates the ne- 
cessity for belts or chains in 
transmitting the power from 
the motor to the pump. The ab- 
sence of these parts together 
with the complete enclosure 
made possible by the compact- 
ness of the design, makes the 
unit a particularly safe one 
where there are children around. 
There is no chance for the curi- 
ous youngster to become in- 
volved in the pump mechanism, 
in the motor or in the drive be- 
cause all of these moving parts 



Fig. 67. The method of connecting the 
fresh water fitting with its underslung dis- 
charge outlet is shown in this Illustration 
of a complete Type "DC" pump installa- 
tion. When the fresh water valve is used 
the pressure switch must be moved from 
the tank to a position in the pipe line on 
the pump side of the fresh water tap. The 
air chamber, (required only when the tank 
Is more than 5 feet away from the pump), 
Is also shown in this layout. 



are concealed within the trim 
cast iron housing of the pump. 

Easily Accessible 

While the entire working 
mechanism is completely en- 
closed, a feature of the design 
of this unusual pump is the ease 
with which the working parts 
may be inspected. All that it is 
necessary to do is to remove the 
conveniently located cap screws 



that secure the upper housing 
to the motor base casting. The 
entire interior mechanism can 
then be lifted out of the hous- 
ing base. The motor housing is 
well ventilated to insure cool 
operation of this part of the 
equipment. 

Self-Oiling 

The base casting of the pump 
serves as an oil reservoir. The 
worm gear, being partly sub- 
merged in oil, carries oil to the 
worm and to the bearings. The 
cross head guides dip into the 
oil on the down-stroke and pro- 
vide lubrication for the guides 
in the frame. The surplus oil 
from the guides drains back into 
the base, lubricating the upper 
worm bearing on its return. 
Thus all working parts are oiled 
automatically when the pump is 



Fifty-five 




in operation. The lubrication 
system is positive in its action 
— no oil pump to get out of or- 
der — no chance for oil to leak 
out and drip into the well. 

Automatic In Operation 
Self Starting — Self Stopping 

The F-M Type "DC" com- 
plete Pressure Tank Systems 
illustrated on the pages preced- 
ing are automatic in operation. 
They start automatically when 
the pressure in the tank gets 
low, and stop automatically 
when the pressure reaches the 
maximum of 40 pounds, always 
keeping the water at suitable 
pressure for delivery at the fau- 
cet. 

If it is desired to discharge 
into an open or overhead tank, 
however, the pump will be fur- 
nished without the air compres- 
sor attachment and pressure 
tank equipment so that its oper- 
ation may be controlled man- 
ually by means of a knife 



Fig. 68. This view shows 
how the entire operating 
mechanism is lifted out of 
the base casting for in- 
spection. Removal of a 
few cap screws is all that 
is necessary to gain easy 
access to the entire inte- 
rior mechanism.

Or, if the pump is to be used 
in connection with an overhead 
tank and automatic control is 
desired, an automatic float

of the pump. 



switch will be furnished on spe- 
cial order to start the motor 
when the water level in the 
tank gets low and to stop it 
when the water in the tank 
reaches the desired maximum. 

Quiet In Operation 

The pump is quiet in opera- 
tion. There is no squeaking of 
dry bearings or joints — no 
knocking or clanging of loosely 
fitted parts! The Type "DC" 
is a pump that can be installed 
in the basement of the home 
without fear of annoyance and 
with absolute confidence that it 
will perform efficiently and to 
the complete satisfaction of all 
concerned. 

Quality Features 

The character of design and 
construction of the Type "DC" 
pump is apparent upon inspec- 
tion. The worm and worm 
shaft are machined from a 
single piece of special alloy 
steel. The worm gear is of phos-

Pressure Cylinder 

All Type "DC" pumps are 
fitted with a pressure cylinder 
having a piston of the double 
cup leather type. The piston of 
the pressure cylinder is driven 
from the cross-head of the pump 
as shown in Fig. 69. 

The pressure cylinder makes 
possible a division of the load 
between the up and down 
strokes of the pump. On the 
up-stroke the pump lifts the 
long column of water to the sur- 
face. On the down stroke, when 
the pump would not otherwise 
be doing any work, the pressure 
cylinder plunger forces the wa- 
ter — under pressure — from the 
pressure cylinder, through the 
discharge valve into the dis- 
charge pipe line. 

The load on the motor is thus 



practically equalized, part of 
the work being done on the up- 
stroke and part on the down- 




stroke instead of all of it being 
done on the up-stroke as would 
otherwise be the case. This re- 
sults in smoother and quieter 
operation of the pump; it also 
eliminates the extreme momen- 
tary overloads on the motor that 
take place when the entire work

of lifting and forcing is done 
on the up-stroke. 

Air Compressor Attachment 

On the pumps furnished for 
pressure tank service the air 
compressor attachment shown 
in Fig. 69 provides a simple and 
efficient means of furnishing 
the necessary air to the tank. 
This compressor is driven from 
the pump cross-head. 

For Pumping Into An Open 
Tank 

Where it is desired to pump 
into an open or overhead stor- 
age tank instead of into a pres- 
sure tank all that it is neces- 
sary to do is to order the stand- 
ard pump unit less the air com- 
pressor. 

Fresh Water Attachment 

With a pressure tank instal- 
lation, water may be drawn di- 
rect from the well for drinking 
purposes by installing a fresh 
water attachment which will be 
furnished with the pump on 
special order. This inexpensive 
attachment will start the pump 
as soon as the drinking water 
faucet is opened, delivering 
clear, cold water direct from 
the well without passing 
through the storage tank — a 
convenience greatly appreciated 
especially on hot days.

Frost Proof Attachment 

When the pump is installed 
in a cold place where there is 
danger of freezing in the win- 
ter time, a frost proof attach- 
ment can be ordered which will 
make it possible for the pump 
to handle the water without 
bringing it above the frost line. 
The anti-freeze or frost proof 
attachment (shown in Fig. 73) 
is regularly furnished for a 

4%' pit. 

The frost proof attachment 
consists of a heavy drop pipe 
extension with suitable attach- 
ment for supporting the pres- 
sure cylinder, a piston rod ex- 
tension and a well cover to fit 
over the well casing at the bot- 
tom of the pit. 

Air Chamber 

In a pressure tank installa- 
tion where the tank is more 
than 5 feet away from the pump, 
or in an open tank installation 



where the discharge line is more 
than 5 feet in length, an air 
chamber should be installed in 
the discharge line to provide 
the necessary air cushion to 
eliminate water hammer in the 
line. Suitable air chambers for 
the various size pumps are avail- 
able on order.

*The depth specified is the maximum allowable distance from the surface of the ground to the lowest water level in the well while the pump is 
operating. In addition to lifting the water this distance, the pressure tank outfits will force it into a pressure tank against 40-lbs. maximum pressure. 
The capacities in the open tank section are computed for discharge at the surface of the ground. 

NOTE A: — Prices of the pump unit given in this column cover the pump with 110- volt, 60 cycle, singe phase motor, pressure cylinder as specified and 
(in the case of the pressure tank outfits only), air compressor. Well cylinder, pump rod and drop pipe, piping package and tank are not 
included (See Table 3 below for prices on tank and piping packages). Direct current or special cycle motors are available at the following 
increase in list price:

*When ordering complete outfits by outfit number, be sure the letter in the outfit number correctly indicates the size of pressure cylinder desired. 
Get from Table No. 1. 

TANKS: — Generally speaking, it it not considered good practice to use a tank smaller than the 70 gal. size with outfits 3/ 4 H.P. and larger. Be sure to 
install a tank large enough to give the desired storage capacity. Prices on larger tanks, 1 20 gals, to 4000 gals, capacity will be found on 
special tank price page. 
**PIPING PACKAGE: — The equipment included in the standard piping package consists of: 

1. Pressure switch 3. Pressure gauge 5. Relief valve in pipe line 

2. Air control for tank 4. Globe valve 6. Necessary union, ell, nipples to complete pump-to-tank connections as illustrated

The Fairbanks-Morse Model 
"A" Pump Jack is offered for 
those cases where an inexpen- 
sive well-made jack of modern 
design is desired for pumping 
from wells where the water lev- 
el is lower than 22 feet from 
the surface of the ground. 

Double Geared Type 

It is of the double geared 
type, the gears being of mould- 
ed construction to insure a hard, 
smooth, long-life wearing sur- 
face. 

Self-Oiling 

The entire mechanism oper- 
ates in a bath of oil. 

The housing or main frame 
casting encloses all working 
parts, making it impossible for

dirt, sleet, snow and water to get 
into the oil as is apt to happen 
with the ordinary open end 
jack. Thus not only is the pos- 
sibility of lubrication dilution 
eliminated but also there is no 
chance for the oil to overflow 
and escape from the housing

and drip into the well. 

The two halves of the main 
frame casting are ground, lined- 
up with machine precision and 
bolted together. A special 
automotive preparation called 
"Form-A-Gasket" is applied be- 
tween the adjoining surfaces to 
prevent oil leakage. 

Interior Mechanism 

A hardened steel roller, con- 
nected to the large main gears 
by means of a cold rolled steel 
pin, operates in a slotted lever 
which in turn is keyed on a 
hinged cold rolled steel pin to 
which the connecting links to 
the pitman are keyed. Com- 
plete enclosure is thus obtained 
and, in addition, the movement 
gives a long leverage or slow

WATER 



SYSTEMS 



Why F-M Engine Driven 
Water Systems Are Easy To Start 



Fig. 91. The Type "R" Rotary High Ten- 
sion Magneto shown below is regular 
equipment at no extra price on all F-M 
engine operated water systems — both shal- 
low and deep well types. 



An engine may have every- 
thing else — but without a reli- 
able ignition system it cannot 
be dependable. The viral spot 
of any gasoline engine is the 
magneto. 

Recognizing that the best 
magneto for a small internal 
combustion engine is one that 
produces a spark with the most 
heat for ignition, Fairbanks- 



Morse builds within their own 
factories the Type "R" Rotary 
High Tension Magneto shown 
here for the "Z" Engine. The 
hot, flaming spark that it deliv- 
ers ignites the fuel quickly. 
That is why the "Z" Engine 
driven water systems — both 
shallow and deep well types — 
are so easy to start. 

The "Z" used on all F-M en- 
gine operated water systems 
has the reputation of being the 
easiest starting engine on the 
market. It has been a more or 
less general opinion in the past 
that a large storage tank is al- 



ways necessary in connection 
with an engine operated system 
because of the difficulty in get- 
ting the engine in operation. 
This, however, does not apply 
to Fairbanks-Morse engine op- 
erated systems. You may use 
a tank as small as 220 gallons 
capacity if you desire, to keep 
the cost at a minimum because 
the engine is not temperamental 




Fig. 92. This test dem- 
onstrates the heat of 
the flaming spark of the 
Type "R" Magneto. A 
block of wood held in 
the spark gap quickly 
catches fire 



— it is always ready to start. 

The Type "R" Magneto has 
many other features. It is self- 
oiling; completely enclosed and 
sealed ; dust-proof ; water-proof, 
oil-proof, rust-proof. It is 
equipped with long-life breaker 
points; a large magnet insuring 
a hotter and more intense

drenching shower — a flip of the 
crank and the "Z" started easily, 
instantly. What better proof that 
a "Z" Engine operated water sys- 
tem can be started easily.

spark; and an unusually large 
armature, making possible a hot 
spark at low cranking speed. 

As a result of the excellent 
performance of this magneto in 
the field the Type "R" magneto 
has won its right to the strong 
F-M guaranty behind it.

Undivided Responsibility 
— an Undivided Guaranty 



Fig. 88. Over 650,000 Fairbanks-Morse 
"Z" engines are in use, many of them op- 
erating F-M Home Water Systems. The 
illustration below shows the interior mech- 
anism of the 1 1/ 2 H.P. "Z." 



Too much emphasis cannot 
be placed on the fact that Fair- 
banks-Morse Home Water Sys- 
tems are designed, completely 
manufactured and sold by a 
single organization — Fairbanks, 
Morse & Co. ! To the prospec- 
tive purchaser of a home water 
system, this undivided respon- 
sibility is a telling sales point 
if properly analyzed and pre- 
sented. 

Contrary to the manufactur- 
ing policy of many companies, 
all models and types of Fair- 
banks-Morse Home Water Sys- 
tems, whether engine or electric 
motor driven, shallow or deep 
well, are made completely by the 
same organization; that is, no 
essential part is "farmed out" or 
purchased. The motor or en- 
gine, the pump, the automatic 
control mechanism and tank 
can thus be designed at the out- 
set as a balanced unit without 
compromises usually found it? 
"assembled" mechanisms. 

Following this inherent ad- 
vantage of undivided design 
comes undivided manufacture. 
The quality of manufacture of 
each integral part is under the 
complete control and supervi- 
sion of the same organization 
responsible for the completed 
system. 

And then finally to the com- 
plete assembly and inspections : 
Here, the manufacturing divi- 
sions responsible for the indi- 
vidual mechanisms are faced 
squarely with the test of qual- 
ity. Failure to come up to the 
required standard can be in- 
stantly rectified. There is no 
lack of ability nor is there the 
temptation to "let it pass" due 
to a remote source of supply 
for any individual part. 




Let us consider the power 
plant for the water system for 
the moment — in this first case, 
the famous "Z" Engine drive. 
Back in 1894 — two years before 
the first automobile engine was 
built — Fairbanks-Morse began 
the manufacture of gasoline en- 
gines. Later when rising prices 
of gasoline raised operating ex- 
pense, thousands of power users 
turned to F-M engines which 
burned kerosene. Then came 
this company's pioneering in 
the field of Diesel Engines of 
which more than 2,750,000 horse- 
power are now in service bear- 
ing the Fairbanks-Morse name. 



It is safe to say that in America 
today there is no single organi- 
zation with longer or more com- 
plete experience in the field 
of internal combustion engine 
manufacturing than Fairbanks- 
Morse. The same engineers and 
manufacturing organization re- 
sponsible for the development 
and manufacture of engines 
large enough to furnish light 
and power to a city, also manu- 
facture the engine which drives 
the F-M Home Water System. 
Now let us consider the elec- 
trically driven F-M Home Wa- 
ter System — and its electric mo-

SYSTEMS 



tor. It is but natural that this 
company should rank high 
among the leading builders of 
electric motors. Again, a pio- 
neer in this field, Fairbanks- 
Morse has been an important 
factor in the development of 
this important source of power. 
First to see the advantages of 
anti-friction bearings, this com- 
pany pioneered the ball-bearing 
motor. Today the F-M Elec- 
tric Motor found in the F-M 
Home Water System is but a 
smaller counterpart of motors 
up to 1200 horsepower and more 
which are furnishing power for 
gigantic industrial enterprises 
— and both are the product of 
equal care. 

Having considered the source 
of power, now let us consider 
the means by which this power 
is brought to the pump — the 
transmission. Fairbanks-Morse 
perfected the now famous Flex- 
Mor Drive, an illustration of 
which appears on this page. 
The Flex-Mor is a drive that 
permits of a more compact ar- 
rangement of the entire system 
due to its ability to operate 
on short centers; it is a drive 




that is silent - 
dressing. It is 
cient belt drive 



- requires no 
the most effi- 
that engineer- 



Fig. 89. Fairbanks-Morse motors meet the 
most exacting electrical specifications. And 
with characteristic thoroughness, the me- 
chanical design incorporates many im- 
proved construction features to give longer, 
trouble-free service. 



Fig. 90. The Flex-Mor "V" belt drive made 
by Fairbanks-Morse and used on F-M Water 
Systems is one of the best drives on the 
market. Illustration at right shows cross 
sectional view of a 3 belt Flex-Mor. 





ing skill has yet devised. 
Careful alignment and 
vibration reduced to the 
lowest possible minimum 
are also large factors in 
the longer service life of 
F-M Home Water Systems. 
Now for the pump unit. In 
other pages in this book ap- 
pears a complete story of Fair- 
banks-Morse Pumps. From a 
large city's pumping require- 
ments to the relatively smaller 
needs of a single home is a long 
step. Fairbanks-Morse Pumps 
serve both and from the stand- 
point of need for reliable serv- 
ice, this company recognizes 
both as equally important. No 
better pumps are made. 

Undivided responsibility 
means an undivided guaranty 
and no passing on of responsi- 
bility under that guaranty!

FAIRBANKS-MORSE HOME WATER SYSTEMS 



GUARANTEED 




Back of the product, back of the dealer and back of the branch house is 
the Fairbanks-Morse guaranty. It is as brief as it is strong: "If any part of any 
Fairbanks-Morse Product fails because of defect this part will be replaced 
without charge, f. o. b. factory, upon return, transportation prepaid, of the 
defective part to the factory/ 7 

To those who have had dealings with the company at some time or other 
during the past seventy-five years, the spirit of the guaranty is well known. To 
these satisfied users the Fairbanks-Morse nameplate is symbolic of the best 
quality that money can buy.

BRASS LINED CYLINDER 

(See Note Below) 



*In selecting a cylinder for a deep well head allow at least 2" for clearance at both the bottom and top of the stroke. In other words 
a 6* stroke pump would take a 10" stroke cylinder; a 9* stroke pump would take the 14* stroke cylinder, etc. 

Check and plunger of either the Fig 454 or 456 cylinder can be drawn through drop pipe without pulling cylinder. These cylinders are fitted with 
friction-proof, waterproof leathers and the finest, toughest rubber made. Tested to 900 pounds water pressure. 

Fig. 456-Y Cylinder:— The barrel of this cylinder is of extra heavy pipe and lined with No. 16 gauge seamless hard brass tubing spun over at top 
and soldered at the tapered bottom The cylinder is good for a working pressure of 500 pounds. The check and plunger are of the same type as used in 
the No. 454-Y priced at the top of this page. * w 

CLOSED OR CAPPED WELL CYLINDERS 

The closed or capped cylinder is used where it is desired to use a well cylinder larger in diameter than the drop pipe. These installations are not 
popular because with a capped cylinder it is not possible to pull the cylinder plunger without pulling the entire drop pipe. However where a canoed 
cylinder is insisted upon the above prices may be used for computing purposes as there is little difference in price. ' vv<^

Air-Tite Steel Sucker Rod 

F. O. B. Chicago 

This is a hollow air-tight rod, and the dry air compartment throughout the length of each rod makes it 
semi-floating and reduces the strain on the pump piston. It has the same coupling thread as wood rod and 
may be used with it. The steel couplings are electrically welded into the rod. Each piece has square 
shouldered joints which make it as easy to install as wood rod.

Fig. 49 "Sure-Tite" Foot Valve with Strainer 

(Galvanized) 

These foot valves are not spring-loaded so that on the deeper suction lifts they will be found to be more satisfac- 
tory than the Fig. 533 listed above. Because of the fact the latter are spring-loaded, about 2 feet of the 22 feet suction 
lift of the pump will be utilized in opening the valve. 

A perfectly finished Brass Seat and Brass Poppet, faced with a Rubber Disc of the very best quality makes a 
perfect seating and an air tight joint. The Poppet guides and stops in the upper casting are so constructed that the 
valve will always seat properly and there is ample water-way passage so that it does not cause friction 

The strainer is covered with perforated sheet brass with the bottom completely closed.

Air Chambers 

An air chamber should be provided in the suction pipe line when water is being drawn through a long run of pipe 
and in the discharge line when water is being forced to a distance or an elevation. In both cases they should ™as neal 
the pump as possible to relieve the pump of excessive strains. Their use tends to give a steady flow of water and to do 
away with water hammer. # a " u LW uu 

The air chamber should have an inside volume about ten times as large as the volumetric displacement of one stroke 
of the pump plunger, or of the well cylinder or pressure cylinder plunger of a deep well pump. ^T^ strode 

Beloit Special Air Chambers 

F. O. B. Beloit 

These air chambers are made of cast iron painted, and are tapped in the base for connection to either suction of dis- 
charge piping and m the neck near the bottom for '// pipe for pressure switch connection. The V size also has a l"/? nine 
tap in the side near the bottom for attachment of the air control when the air chamber also serves as a tank

Sanitary Septic Tanks

available in four practical sizes. Low in 

price — high in efficiency. 



Easy to Install 

Low in Price 

No chemicals required 



F-M Sanitary Septic Tanks 
provide a safe, modern and san- 
itary means of sewage disposal 
for the farm, suburban home, 
factory, school or country club 
beyond the range of city sew- 
age mains. 

These tanks should not be 
confused with the out-of-date 
and much less satisfactory cess- 



pool means of sewage disposal. 
The septic tank actually decom- 
poses the solids in the sewage 
by means of bacterial action 
brought about by the absence of 
air in the tank. No chemicals 
are required. The liquids formed 
in the breaking down of this 
solid matter combine with the 
watery wastes of the sewage to 
form the overflow or effluent 
from the tank, which seeps out 
through the discharge of the 
tank into the drainage system 
commonly referred to as the 
purification field. (See illus- 
trations.) In the purification

al view of F-M Sani-

intake is piped to

field the liquified sewage from 
the tank is purified by bacterial 
reaction in the top soil. The 
top soil (top 20" to 24") con- 
tains thousands of bacteria 
which change organic matter 
into the kind of food necessary 
for the growth of grass, trees 
and vegetation. 

A Two-Fold Investment 

The F-M Sanitary Septic 
Tank not only constitutes an 
ideal health insurance, but it in- 
creases property value far be- 
yond its original moderate cost.

a few years ago could do one of 
two things regarding sewage 
disposal. First — he might use 
a cesspool — always very dan- 
gerous because of the ever-pres- 
ent and ever-spreading pollu- 
tion. Second — he might build 
a septic tank in the ground — a 
better plan but still doubtful 
because it is difficult to make 
a tank of this kind water-tight. 
Seepage or cracked walls 
change the home-made septic 
system into a dangerous cess- 
pool. 

Now with the F-M Sanitary 
Septic Tank, this troublesome 
problem is completely solved. 
Sewage disposal is made safer 
— and easier.

ous, the leaching well 
may be omitted.

they are scientific, and their 
low prices place them within 
the reach of all. 

Four Sizes 

F-M Septic Tanks are avail- 
able in four sizes : 200, 300, 500 
and 1000 gallons working capa- 
city. They are constructed of 
the very best quality blue an- 
nealed steel, coated inside and 



out with a heavy coating of 
black plastic enamel applied by 
the "hot dip" process. Tanks 
of 500 gallons and smaller are 
of No. 14 gauge steel; the 1000 
gallon size is made of No. 12 
gauge. All tanks are electrical- 
ly welded throughout, no rivets 
or "spot" welds being used. The 
cover is removable and is se- 
cured by three bolts. 

The 500 and 1000 gallon sizes 
are designed for larger instal-

This type of installation provides the best dis- 
tribution and assures proper aeration of the efflu- 
ent. In non porous soils a leaching pool as recom- 
mended in Figure 77 should be used; in porous soils 
the leaching pool may be eliminated. 



The plan illustrated at the left may be used with 
either porous or non-porous soils. If the soil is 
heavy clay, a leaching pool the size of the tank 
should be provided— Where soil is semi-porous, the 
leaching pool can be eliminated.-. In either case a 
vent should be provided as indicated.

This arrangement should be used where the sew- 
age installation is on a hillside or where the ground 
slopes steeply. The absorption bed is laid in long 
horizontal lines as indicated, at different levels on 
the side of the hill. The short lines carry the efflu- 
ent from the one level to the next one below.

lations. They are provided with 
two manhole openings, one over 
the inlet and the other over the 
outlet end. They are covered 
with heavy gauge metal man- 
hole covers held in place by 
bolts and nuts. 

In construction details the 
tanks follow the specifications 
of the U. S. Public Health 
Service. They have properly 
designed inlet and outlet baffles 
as well as a sludge baffle as 
shown in cross-sectional illus- 
tration. The inlet and outlet 
baffles are of correct size and 
capacity and both the inlet and 
outlet connections in the tank 
are provided with stops that 
make it impossible to shove the 
tile so far in that the opening 
is obstructed. 

How to Install 

The installation of an F-M 
Septic Tank presents no diffi- 
culties whatever. 

The tank should be installed 
at least 5 feet (preferably 10 



feet) away from the building 
which it serves and should be at 
least 50 feet from any natural 
water supply such as a spring 
or well. 

Tank should have a top cover 
of not more than 27" of earth. 
In most sections of the United 
States a cover of 12" will keep 
the tank at a suitable tempera- 
ture for bacterial action. 

The drain from the house to 
the tank should be 4" or 6" 
sewer tile with tight joints. The 
small end of a 4" sewer tile will 
slip inside of the tank connec- 
tion, or the bell end of a 6" tile 
will slip over the outside of the 
connection. Grade %" to the 
foot. 

Be sure the intake is piped to 
the higher opening in the tank 
as shown in the cross-sectional 
view. The tank will not oper- 
ate properly if the connections 
are reversed. 

The drain tile from the tank 
should be laid about 12" to 16" 



below the surface so that the 
sunlight and purifying bacteria 
of the top soil will act upon the 
effluent. The first 3 or 4 lengths 
of the drain tile should be laid 
on a steep grade (about %" to 
the foot) with tightly made 
joints. After this the line should 
be flattened out to a grade of 6" 
to 100 feet, from which the 
parallel rows of ordinary un- 
glazed farm drain tile, 6 feet 
apart, should be laid with the 
ends butted together, resting 
on a brick or stone. Leave about 
%" space between each section 
of tile. Cover the top of each 
joint with a strip of tar paper 
4" wide. 

The branch lines should have 
a slope of about 6" to the 100 
feet in sandy soil; not more 
than 3" to the 100 feet in tight 
clay soil. The branch lines 
should not be more than 100 feet 
long except in hilly localities 
where the line is coiled like a 
snake. (See Figure 80 on the 
previous page.)

No adapter plates are required with the RA and DM type motors used for replacements on the old 120 
G.P.H. plant. 



OVERLOAD AND LOW-VOLTAGE RELAY:— This protective feature is furnished as regular equipment with all shallow well water plant complete 
motor replacements priced above except in the case of the % H.P. motors listed for the old 120 gallon plant; also except in the case of the direct current 
motors (32, 115 or 230 volts) furnished for the 210, 200, 250, 420 and 500 G.P.H. plants. 

The overload relay is not regularly furnished with direct current motors because direct current motors automatically adjust themselves somewhat 
to an overload by slowing down m speed, making line protection less necessary. Furthermore, a much more expensive type of relay would be required 
for direct current to take care of the heavy arcing that takes place when a direct current circuit is broken. 

The protective relay is not furnished with vertical motors for the Type "DC* Deep Well Head listed on next page. 

EXPORT IMPREGNATION: — If the motors are wanted with special impregnation of coils to withstand attack of salt water atmosphere or that of warm 
humid climates, add $1.50 per motor and specify "with export impregnation."

IMPORTANT NOTICEI 

When direct current motors y A H.P. and larger are used, it is necessary to install a secondary 
starter in addition to the regular pressure switch, to guard against armature burn-outs and excessive 
sparking at the brushes during the starting period. 

*w A S ^2 nd ^^ taT }^ is , also . necessar y in the case of the 5 and 7 «/ 2 H.P. ratings, as well as in 

the case_of the 3 H.P 110 volt, single phase rating. The prices of the secondary starter equipment 
can be found below for those motor ratings requiring the use of a starter. Be sure to include the 
starter (when required) in your quotation, unless customer wishes to secure this part of the eauiD- 
ment elsewhere. H v

Information About 
Water Storage Tanks 



Two Methods of Storing Water 

The two general methods of 
storing water are by means of 
the overhead gravity tank and 
the pressure tank. 

When we speak of two meth- 
ods of storing water we have in 
mind, of course, storing water 
under conditions that will give 
it the necessary pressure to flow 
out of the faucet when the fau- 
cet is opened. 

It is a well-known fact that 
before energy can be secured 
from anything, energy must first 
be put into it. Water is incom- 
pressible — it is not elastic. It 
does not behave like a gas, there- 
fore compression is a poor way 
of storing energy in water. En- 
ergy can be stored in water, 
however, by elevating it a con- 
siderable distance from the 
earth. It will have stored in it, 
due to the law of gravity acting 
upon its weight, a certain po- 
tential energy because of its el- 
evation. This energy is called 
"static head," and the higher 
the water is stored the greater 
will be its "head" which is 
either expressed in feet (mean- 
ing the feet elevation) or in 
pounds per square inch. There 
is a very definite relation be- 
tween the two, which is as fol- 
lows: 

A column of water one foot 
in height exerts a pressure of 
.43 pounds per square inch at 



its base; or, what is the same 
thing — for every 2.31 feet in the 
height of a column of water a 



& 



ji'wm™, 



assi 



pressure of 1 pound per square 
inch can be secured. 

It can be seen from the above 
that in order to get a 10 pound 
pressure on the water at the 
faucet it is necessary to elevate 
the water 10x2.31, or 23.1 feet. 

This method of storage is 
called the "overhead" or "grav- 
ity tank" system. It has sever- 
al disadvantages. In the first 
place, it is impossible to get a 
good pressure without storing 
the tank on a windmill tower or 
some other place a considerable 
distance above the point of us- 
age. If the tank is placed on a 
windmill tower, it will freeze 
in the winter time; if it is 
placed in the attic, the water 
will not have much pressure; 
the tank is apt to leak if a wood 
tank is used, and if a steel tank 
is employed, it will "sweat" in 
the summer time, necessitating 
the use of drip pans. Also, in 
the summer time the water in

matic or pressure tank.

gravity tank. 



the tank will get warm, making 
it unsatisfactory for drinking 
purposes. Further, a tank large 
enough to serve the average 
family puts a tremendous strain 
on the building ; there is always 
danger of leakage, and, although 
the tanks are usually covered, 
they are not sealed, with the 
result that considerable dirt and 
dust find their way into the 
tank, contaminating the water. 
Overhead tanks are seldom in- 
stalled nowadays, even though 
a suitable tower is already avail- 
able, as shown in the sketch, be- 
cause of the various disadvan- 
tages, as well as the expense of 
installation. 

The Pneumatic Tank 

A much more popular system 
of water storage is the pneu- 
matic tank. Here an air-tight 
tank is used for the storage and 
a cushion of air is kept at the 
top of the tank. Air is elastic

WATER 



SYSTEMS 



— it can be compressed to oc- 
cupy a very small fraction of 
its original space ; in fact it can 
be compressed to a point of li- 
quification, although this, of 
course, never takes place at any- 
thing like the pressures em- 
ployed in a pneumatic tank. The 
big advantage of air, however, 
is that, again because of its 
elasticity, when the pressure is 
relieved, or, in other words, 
when the faucet is opened, the 
air will expand. In endeavor- 
ing to get back to its original 
or atmospheric volume it will 
force the water before it in the 
pipes to any discharge opening 
there may be in the system, pro- 
vided the faucet is not at a 
point too high for the pressure 
in the tank. Here again we 
come back to our previous rule, 
namely, 1 pound per square inch 
is equal to a 2.31 foot elevation. 
40 pounds per square inch in 
the tank, therefore, will raise 
water 40x231 or 92.40 feet pro- 
vided there were no friction in 
the pipe. 

There is always friction in 
pipe, however, so that the "loss 
of head" due to friction should 
be deducted. This can be se- 
cured from table No. 1 in the 
engineering section located in 
the back of this catalog. For 
instance, if you had a ^4 inch 
discharge pipe 100 feet long 
and you had water flowing at 
the rate of 3 gallons per min- 
ute, the loss of head due to fric- 
tion in the pipe (from table) 
would be 4.1 feet. In other 
words, the 40 pound tank pres- 
sure would raise the water a 
vertical distance of 92.4 less 4.1, 
or 88.3 feet. For all practical 
calculations it may be assumed 
that 1 pound of pressure will 



elevate water 2 feet instead of 
2.31. 

The pneumatic or pressure 
tank has several advantages 
over the overhead tank. In the 
first place, it may be installed 
in the basement or some other 
convenient place and eliminate 
possible damage to the ceiling 
because of "sweating/' Pneu- 
matic tanks are pressure tested 
and are not nearly so apt to 
spring a leak as the wood or 
light gauge steel tanks; and, 
lastly, they are completely en- 
closed so that the water while 
in storage is protected from 
dust, dirt and other contamina- 
tion. 

How To Select The Proper Size 
Tank To Use 

It is advisable to select a tank 
of sufficient capacity to give the 
customer the reserve capacity 
you think he will need to carry 
him over a period of shut down 
in case of failure of the elec- 
tric current which frequently 
occurs during a severe storm. 

There are other cases where 
the demand for water is com- 
paratively heavy but only for 
intermittent and short periods. 
In a case of this kind a storage 
tank of large capacity might be 
used in connection with a rela- 
tively small pump. 

There are other cases where 
the demand is heavy for rela- 
tively long periods — for in- 
stance those cases where there 
is apt to be daily sprinkling 
with a number of sprinklers for 
perhaps an hour or more. About 
200 gallons per hour is required 
to feed a sprinkler, so if there 
are three sprinklers to be used 
it would be preferable to install 
a 600 gallon pump unit and a 



relatively small tank rather 
than a 210 gallon pump unit and 
a 1000 gallon tank. 

Working Capacities Of Tanks 

It must be borne in mind that 
you do not get 1000 gallons of 
water out of a 1000 gallon tank 
between the pressure limits of 
40 and 20 pounds. In the first 
place the tank, if properly reg- 
ulated has about one-third of 
its capacity devoted to the stor- 
age of air. This leaves only 
666 gallons of water to start 
with. 

In the second place, the cus- 
tomer does not completely drain 
his tank but instead when the 
pressure reaches say 20 pounds 
the pump automatically starts 
to operate. Furthermore the 
discharge outlet is always high- 
er than the extreme bottom of 
the tank. This also influences 
the amount of water that can 
be secured from the tank be- 
tween the customary 40-20 
pound pressure limits. 

It can be roughly stated that, 
with 1/3 of the tank volume oc- 
cupied with air when the pres- 
sure stands at the maximum of 
40 pounds, approximately 1/5 
of the full capacity of the tank 
can be drawn before the pres- 
sure falls to 20 pounds. In other 
words, a 1000 gallon tank will 
discharge 200 gallons of water 
before the pump cuts in; a 220 
gallon tank about 45 gallons of 
water, etc. 

When To Sell A Fresh Water 
Unit 

Deep Well Pumps are occa- 
sionally installed without a 
storage tank but with a large 
air chamber for what is called 
"Fresh Water Service."

WATER 



SYSTEMS 



This outfit is satisfactory for 
use where the water require- 
ments are light such as in a 
small summer cottage, a filling 
station or for drinking water 
only. The absence of a tank 
makes it a very compact system 
and the flexibility of the piping 
permits of mounting the air 
chamber either in the position 
shown in the cut or the piping 
with air chamber can be run 
along side the pump base, 
whichever is more convenient. 

The fresh water outfit may be 
used in connection with an over- 
head storage tank, filling the 
tank once or twice a day per- 
haps, for general water service 
requirements and using the di- 
rect water system at other times 
simply for drinking water pur- 
poses. The water in the air 
chamber will always be cold for 
this purpose. 

For other service a storage 
tank is always preferable on a 
deep well installation. Even a 
system with a 35 gallon tank 
would be better than the air 
chamber installation if space 
will permit the installation of 
a tank because the larger the 
storage capacity the more the 
ability of the tank to absorb 
load fluctuations. 

For instance take a fresh wa- 
ter system that has a capacity 
of say 415 gallons per hour. If 
a faucet were partially opened 
so that it would deliver say only 
150 gallons an hour it would 
mean that the pressure in the 
air chamber would continually 
build up and drop causing the 
switch to start and stop the sys- 
tem repeatedly as long as the 



faucet is opened. This would 
always happen unless the out- 
let took the entire capacity of 
the pump. If the pump had a 
capacity of 415 gallons per 
hour the outlets would have to 
absorb the entire 415 gallons per 
hour or the frequent stopping 
and starting would take place. 

A storage tank on the other 
hand — even one of 35 gallons 
capacity would have sufficient 
capacity to take care of most of 
the water requirements around 
the home. It takes only about 5 
gallons for instance to flush a 
toilet. The valve in a toilet 
tank is very small so that a 
fresh water unit might start and 
stop two or three times while 
the flushing process is in opera- 
tion while a tank outfit would 
take care of it without a start 
at all unless the tank pressure 
happened to be very low at the 
time. In that case the pump 
would start, but only once and 
at the same time it would be re- 
plenishing the water in the 
tank. 

Systems With Exceptionally 
Large Storage Capacity 

Quite frequently a prospect 
will want a water system with 
unusually large storage capa- 
city to use either for emergency 
demand in the case of fire or for 
peak sprinkling loads in the 
summer time. Many houses are 
being erected in the outlying 
suburbs or along the fringe of 
golf courses in which water 
systems of this kind are re- 
quired. 

A 5000 gallon storage tank is 
a clumsy thing to handle. If 
it has to be frost-proofed — and 
most of them do — it means an 



exceptionally deep hole is re- 
quired to sink them if they are 
put in the ground or an unwar- 
rantably large space required to 
place them in a building. 

A great many installations 
with large storage capacity have 
been installed by Fairbanks- 
Morse engineers for residences 
in the metropolitan suburban 
districts in which the tank 
problem has been solved in a 
way that invariably meets with 
the approval of the owner. A 
layout of a typical installation 
is shown on the next page. 

In this particular case three 
1000 gallon tanks were used in 
multiple in connection with a 
3 H.P. F-M Type "DC" Deep 
Well Pump. By a simple man- 
ipulation of the valves the three 
tanks can be pumped full, after 
which all but one can be shut 
off to be held in reserve for 
emergency service. If the pip- 
ing is properly done they will 
hold their pressure indefinitely. 
A pressure gauge should be in- 
stalled on each tank so that the 
pressure may be observed from 
time to time as a check. 

With this system there is in 
regular service only one stor- 
age tank of 1000 gallons capa- 
city, which in itself has two dis- 
tinct advantages. 

1. In the first place it gives 
the customer a more frequent 
"turnover" of water for his reg- 
ular service requirements. The 
water in daily use therefore is 
not allowed to become stale. 

2. In large tanks of 1000 to 
5000 gallons capacity it is us- 
ually difficult to maintain the 
proper volume of air without 
the use of an auxiliary air com-

pressor. In tanks 1000 gallons 
and smaller the maintenance of 
the proper air volume is a com- 
paratively simple matter. 



Fresh Water Attachment 

Where large storage tanks are 
used frequently the customer 
will want to install the fresh 



water attachment so that he can 
get drinking water directly 
from the well.

terns are priced both with and 
without the fresh water valve. 
When the fresh water attach- 
ment is used it necessitates 
changing the position of the 
pressure switch in the standard 
layout from the tank to the 
pump side of the fresh water 
valve. On deep well systems it 
is desirable to pipe the air com- 
pressor outlet to the tank side 
of the fresh water valve to pre- 
vent the fresh water pipe itself 
from acting in the capacity of 
an air chamber and mixing the 
air with the fresh water. The 
underslung pipe connection 
shown in the sales illustrations 
will help materially to direct 
the passage of the air into the 
tank where it properly belongs. 
Fresh water attachments are 
not recommended for large size 
pumps with tanks smaller than 
220 gallons capacity for two 
reasons. In the first place, bear- 
ing in mind the working capa- 
city of a tank between the 40 
and 20 pound limits is only 
about 1/5 of its rated capacity, 
a fresh water valve is hardly 
necessary because the water in 
the tank never gets an oppor- 
tunity to become stale. 

Secondly, bearing in mind a 
faucet will discharge at the rate 



of say only 200 gallons per hour 
if you have a 600 gallon pump 
with fresh water attachment it 
means when the fresh water 
faucet is opened and the pump 
starts to operate the pump will 
deliver water at the rate of 400 
gallons per hour while the fau- 
cet is open, and when the fau- 
cet is closed, at the rate of 600 
gallons per hour to the storage 
tank until the pressure is 
reached at which the pressure 
switch will "cut out." You can 
readily appreciate if a small 
tank is used and the fresh water 
faucet opened ten or fifteen 
times during the day — even for 
only a minute or so at a time — 
there is a chance that over- 
pressure will be built up a little 
at a time in the storage tank, 
particularly if no water is 
drawn from the tank in the 
meantime. If water is drawn 
from the storage tank occasion- 
ally there is no chance of this 
over-pressure developing even 
if the fresh water faucet is 
opened very frequently through- 
out the day. A large tank will 
absorb irregularities of this sort 
much better than a small one. 

Take an extreme case. Sup- 
pose a No. 6 deep well head 
with a capacity of 415 gallons 



per hour were installed with a 
35 gallon storage tank and a 
fresh water attachment from 
which a pipe is run to supply a 
drinking fountain at a filling 
station which is used perhaps 
eight or ten times per hour. 

Being on the fresh water line 
every time the drinking foun- 
tain is turned on the pump will 
start to operate. The drinking 
fountain will take only about a 
gallon a minute so the rest of 
the pump capacity must go into 
the tank with the result that 
after a few hours the tank pres- 
sure may build up beyond the 
normal maximum and place too 
heavy a load on the motor as 
well as more than the normal 
operating pressure on the tank. 

The case just illustrated is 
an ideal place to put in a Fresh 
Water Unit with large air 
chamber. The drinking foun- 
tain may be opened as often as 
desired without any chance of 
over-pressure developing. The 
air chamber, having a capacity 
oi §Yz gallons, will supply sev- 
eral drinks between pump op- 
erations. With this system cold 
water from the air chamber is 
always available at the fountain 
with only an occasional start 
and stop of the pump unit.

To get the capacity for a stroke longer than 12 inches, add the capacities of any two strokes that total the desired stroke. 
In other words a 16" stroke is the equivalent of 2—8" strokes or a 10" and a 6" stroke, etc.

NOTE: — The actual quantities will vary from these figures, the amount of variation depending upon the shape of nozzle 
and size of pipe at the point where the pressure is determined. With smooth taper nozzles the actual discharge is about 94 per cent 
of the figures given in the tables.

TABLE NO. 12— HOW TO CALCULATE PULLEY SIZES 



The driving pulley is called 
the Driver, and the driven pul- 
ley the Driven. 

If the number of gear teeth 
is used instead of diameter, 
then the number of teeth must 
be substituted wherever diam- 
eter occurs. 

To find the Diameter of Driv- 
er, the diameter of the Driven 
and its revolutions per minute, 
and also revolutions of Driver 
being given: Multiply the di- 
ameter of Driven by its revolu- 
tions, and divide the product by 
the revolutions of Driver; the 



quotient will give the diameter 
of the Driver. 

To find the Diameter of Driv- 
en, the revolutions of the Driv- 
en, also diameter and revolu- 
tions per minute of the Driver 
being given: Multiply the di- 
ameter of Driver by its revolu- 
tions, and divide the product by 
the revolutions of the Driven ; 
the quotient will give the diam- 
eter of the Driven. 

To find the Revolutions of 
the Driver, the diameter and 
revolutions per minute of the 
Driven, also diameter of the 



Driver being given: Multiply 
the diameter of Driven by revo- 
lutions, and divide the product 
by the diameter of the Driver; 
the quotient will give the revo- 
lutions per minute of Driver. 

To find the Revolutions of the 
Driven, the diameter and revo- 
lutions per minute of the Driv- 
er, also diameter of the Driven 
being given: Multiply the di- 
ameter of Driver by its revolu- 
tions, and divide the product by 
the diameter of Driven ; the 
quotient will give the revolu- 
tions per minute of Driven.

TABLE No. 13-MECHANICAL AND HYDRAULIC TERMS AND EQUATIONS 



Feet Head: To get the feet 
head when pounds pressure are 
given, multiply by 2.3 (2 is close 
enough for all practical pur- 
poses). 

Pounds Pressure : To get the 
pressure in pounds per square 
inch when the elevation of feet 
head are given, multiply by 
0.434 or, roughly speaking, di- 
vide by 2. 

Total Head : In pumping wa- 
ter, the total head is the sum of 
the suction distance, (the lift- 
ing distance in the case of a 
deep well system) the discharge 
elevation, and the friction head 
of the water in the pipe. 

Friction: Friction of liquids 
in pipes increases as the square 
of the velocity. 

Velocity : Velocity in feet per 
minute necessary to discharge 
a given volume of water in a 
given time is found by multi- 
plying the number of cubic feet 
of water by 1.44 and dividing 
the product by the area of the 
pipe in square inches. 

Area: To get the area of a 
pipe or any circle, square the 



diameter and multiply by .7854. 
(See table number 6 for areas.) 

Tank Capacity: To find the 
capacity in gallons of any cyl- 
inder tank or cistern, square 
the diameter (in feet) multiply 
by .7854. Multiply this by the 
height in feet and by 7.48. (See 
table 4.) 

Cylinder Capacity: To find 
the capacity of any pipe or cyl- 
inder in gallons, multiply the 
square of the diameter in inches 
by the length in inches and mul- 
tiply the product by .0034. (See 
table number 6, and capacities 
of common size cylinders.) 

Pump Capacity: To get the 

capacity of any single acting 
pump, multiply the cylinder 
displacement per stroke in gal- 
lons (Table 6) by the number of 
strokes per minute. This will 
give you the gallons per min- 
ute. To get the gallons per 
hour, multiply by 60. In the 
case of a double acting pump 
multiply the result by 2. 

Foot Pound : A foot pound 
is the unit of work. When one 
pound is raised a distance of 



one foot, one foot pound of 
work is expended. Foot pounds 
are the product of the weight 
in pounds and the vertical dis- 
tance in feet. 10 pounds raised 
5 feet equals 50 foot pounds, etc. 

Horse Power: A horse power 
is 550 foot pounds per second 
or 33,000 foot pounds per min- 
ute. 

Efficiency: The ratio of the 
amount of work secured from a 
machine to the amount of work 
or energy put into it. The ra- 
tio of output to input, so to 
speak. This figure is always 
less than 100%. 

Horse Power Required to 
Operate a Pump: First con- 
vert the number of gallons to 
be handled per minute to pounds 
(multiplying the number of gal- 
lons by 8.33 in the case of wa- 
ter). Multiply the product by 
the total head in feet, and di- 
vide by 33,000 times the effi- 
ciency of the pump. A simple 
and approximate formula for 
determining the horse power re- 
quired to lift water is as fol- 
lows: 

Horsepower equals 

Total head in ft. x G.P.M. delivered 
4000 x efficiency of pump

FAIRBANKS-MORSE 
INDUSTRIAL PUMPS 



Fairbanks-Morse industrial pumping equipment has 
earned a reputation for reliability — a reputation that 
should be significant to all buyers of pumps for large 
or small jobs. 

The performance record of F-M installations is 
founded upon two factors. First, the quality of the 
equipment. Back of every F-M pump and motor are 
more than 50 of years experience as pioneers in water 
works construction and the resources of one of the 
world's largest pump and motor manufacturers. Second, 
the proper application of equipment. Fairbanks-Morse 
combined knowledge of power and pumping assures a 
perfect balance between units and a close application 
to specific problems. 

Fairbanks-Morse pumps are built in many types and 
capacities — from deep well turbines to huge centri- 
fugal and propeller-type pumps. Information on a few 
of the pumps comprising this line is given in the follow- 
ing pages. Further details or information describing 
pumps for other requirements will be furnished upon 
application to any of the Fairbanks-Morse Branches.

The F-M Fig. 5520 and 5530 series 
ball-bearing centrifugal pumps 
shown at the left are moderately 
priced, highly-efficient units. They 
are of compact sturdy construction, 
especially designed for general 
service and heavy duty in sizes 
from 1 to 8 inches, for capacities 
from 25 to 1000 g.p.m. against 
heads up to 135 ft. Equipped with 
F-M ball-bearing motors, they 
make up complete ball-bearing units 
free from the mechanical troubles 
experienced when sleeve bearings 
are used. 

Fairbanks, Morse & Co. has de- 
veloped a line of split-case centrif- 
ugal pumps — revolutionary in me- 
chanical construction and hydraulic 
design. Perfected as the result of 
vast experimental and field research 
over a period of years, these pumps 
in mechanical construction far out- 
rank all pumps previously available, 
typical unit being illustrated below. 



Hydraulically almost perfect stream lining of flow results in unusually 
high built-in efficiency. This efficiency is sustained through an especially 
long life because it is not dependent on close clearances of the wearing ring 
nor on high polish of the impeller or volute. Fig. 5803 series pumps are 
available in sizes from \y 2 " to 8" with a wide capacity-head coverage.

The F-M sewage and trash pumps illustrated on 
this page are designed for the economical handling 
of fluids containing large solids and much foreign 
matter, such as flexible trash. These pumps have 
two very definite advantages which greatly influ- 
ence the efficiency and economy of operation; first, 
continuity of performance without clogging, sec- 
ond, elimination of the necessity and expense of 
screening out solid material in the fluids to be 
handled. The impeller will pass anything that en- 
ters the suction nozzle. 

These pumps are adaptable for pumping sani- 
tary sewage, tannery waste, beet pulp in sugar 
mills, paper stock and other fluids with material 
in suspension. In construction and drainage serv- 
ice they can be used to great advantage where the 
water to be pumped contains rubbish, roots, sods, 
weeds or other objects which clog ordinary cen- 
trifugal pumps. 

The horizontal-type pump shown above is made 
in sizes from 2 to 20 inches, with a wide capacity- 
head range. 

The vertical-type pump shown at the right has 
similar capacity and head ratings and is made in 
the same sizes. The ball bearings of the Fairbanks- 
Morse sewage and trash pumps are mounted out- 
side of the pump proper and consequently cannot 
be affected by material passing through the pump.

The Centrifugal Pumps listed 
here are of the single - stage, 
side-suction type for general 
water supply and industrial 
service. They are part of a 
complete line of centrifugal 
pumps which are well known 
for their efficiency, durability, 
dependability, and smooth run- 
ning qualities. 

Fig. 5510 centrifugal pumps 
are of compact sturdy construc- 
tion especially designed for 
general service and heavy duty 
in sizes from one to eight inches 
for capacities from 25 to 2200 
gallons per minute against 
heads up to 120 feet. 

Quantity production assures 
well built pumps at moderate 
prices. The use of metal pat- 
terns, complete sets of jigs and 
fixtures, and scientific methods 
for balancing pump impellers, 
insure uniformity of production 
and enable the user to obtain 
accurately fitting repair parts 
with promptness. 

Open impellers are used on 
all sizes. Frames are cast in 
one piece, and are heavy and 
rigid so as to take care of in- 
ternal pressure, as well as sup- 
port the bearings and resist 
belt-pull without distortion.

boxes are used for the frame 
bearings and provision is made 
for ample lubrication by use of 
ring oiling. 

All sizes are furnished for 
belt drive. These pumps are 
particularly adapted to irriga- 
tion, circulation, industrial pur- 
poses and general service where 
total heads do not exceed 120 



feet. 

The table below shows the 
normal or average capacity of 
the pumps listed. When pump- 
ing these amounts the discharge 
velocity is well within the lim- 
its of conservative practice.

General Service or Boiler-Feed Steam Pumps 

Duplex Piston Type 



Fairbanks - Morse General 
Service or Boiler - Feed Steam 
Pumps are adapted to many 
classes of general pumping and 
have a wide range of applica- 
tion. They are used extensively 
in municipal water plants, rail- 
road water stations, office 
buildings, public institutions, 
factories, hotels, hospitals, re- 
frigerating plants, etc. 

While there are a number of 
types of Fairbanks- Morse 
Pumps adapted for general 
service pumping and for boiler- 
feed purposes, only a few sizes 



are listed in the table below, all 
of which are well proportioned 
for that particular service when 
pumping clean water. 

The ratings given below are 
conservative, and while any of 
these pumps can be operated, 
under suitable conditions, from 
25 to 50 per cent faster than 
the ratings given, it is evident 
that if pumps are selected on 
the basis of conservative rating, 
it will result in increased life 
and decreased maintenance. 

The high degree of service- 
ability and dependability of 



these pumps is a result of num- 
erous refinements in design and 
construction. A few of these 
refinements are : the metal pat- 
terns used in making the cast- 
ings ; the excellent machine 
work throughout; and the drop- 
forged valves and valve stems. 
These features augmented by 
many others, lead to uniform- 
ity and accuracy in castings, 
correctness in assembly, uni- 
form distribution of metal to 
give maximum strength and 
ultimately, efficient and eco- 
nomical service.

Enclosed Self-Oiling Duplex Power Pumps 

Removable Cylinder — Piston Pattern — Back Geared 

For general pumping duty, up to 22 feet lift and against pressures vary- 
ing from 175 to 300 pounds, according to size of cylinder selected. 



Fairbanks - Morse Enclosed 
Self-Oiling Power Pumps are 
designed for pumping water or 
oil at pressures up to 300 
pounds per square inch. Be- 
cause of their simplicity and 
sturdy construction, they give 
assurance of dependable, steady 
service. These pumps are be- 
ing used in connection with wa- 
ter systems in large country 
homes, country clubs, village 
water works, water stations, of- 
fice buildings, refrigerating 
plants, and other places where 
the water to be pumped does 
not contain a large proportion 
of solid matter. They also find 
extensive application in oil-field 
service. 

These pumps are entirely 
self-oiling, and thorough and 
positive lubrication of all work- 
ing parts is assured. Oil cups, 
grease cups and other lubricat- 
ing devices have been elimi- 
nated. No attention is required 



other than to maintain a supply 
of oil in the reservoir that feeds 
the lubrication system. Reduc- 
ing the attention needed makes 
these pumps especially desir- 
able for installations in remote 
and inaccessible locations. 

The power end is completely 
enclosed, thereby excluding 
dirt and preventing accidental 
contact with moving parts. A 
removable cover bolted to the 
crank end of the frame permits 
easy access to parts in the 
power end. The cover and frame 
are machined, and provided 
with a gasket, making an oil 
tight fit. 

These pumps also have many 
other desirable features such as 
drop forged crankshaft, ma- 
chine cut gears, etc. Various 
sizes are fitted with removable 
cylinders and pistons which 
can be replaced quickly and 
easily, and which can be 
changed so that cylinders and 



pistons of different diameters 
can be substituted to obtain op- 
erating characteristics to meet 
different service conditions. 

These pumps are built with 
pulley for belt drive ; with elec- 
tric motor and Flex-Mor drive 
as shown above ; and with "Z" 
Engine connected by an Eclipse 
friction clutch. If the service 
for which the engine driven 
outfit is desired is such as to 
make it necessary to start the 
pump against high pressure, 
the engine can be started at no 
load and by means of the fric- 
tion clutch the pump started 
and stopped at will while the 
engine is in operation. Each 
combination is entirely F - M 
designed and built, and is a 
self-contained unit. 

For more detailed informa- 
tion on these and larger power 
pumps of the same type ask for 
special bulletin.
